Is this a bug in 4.83.5-1?

Upgraded a couple of my servers this past week to mailscanner-4.83.5-1.

Noticed behavior that I don't recall seeing before.

In the MailScanner.conf file you have two directives:

# When a message is to not be virus-scanned (which may happen depending
# upon the setting of "Virus Scanning", especially if it is a ruleset),
# do you want to add the header advising the users to get their email
# virus-scanned by you?
# Very good for advertising your MailScanning service and encouraging
# users to give you some more money and sign up to virus scanning.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Mark Unscanned Messages = no

# This is the text used by the "Mark Unscanned Messages" option above.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Unscanned Header Value = Not scanned: please contact your Internet E-Mail Service Provider for details

ALL of my messages have the unscanned x-header still set even though I have Mark Unscanned Messages = no.

We don't use Mailscanner to virus scan any mail, I have Virus Scanners = none
