Confluence CLI has problems with markdown ModifyPage

I am trying to append content to an existing Confluence OnDemand page using the CLI. My command is something like:

./confluence.sh -a modifyPage --space xxx --title "Open Project Notes" --noConvert --markdown --content2 '# This is a test.

This is a test.'

However, this change ends up rerendering my content and making existing Confluence macros "show up" in the existing content. Is there a way to prevent this behavior? The simulate option doesn't simulate the change, but debugging seems to indicate that the entire page is rerendered into Markdown, thus deleting the macro prefix (as if I pasted the whole thing into the editor and it was all treated as paragraph text).

I'm using 3.8.0 of the CLI.

My use case is providing a Markdown file or short string to append to the end of the page (project notes), but I don't want to have to manually use the Confluence web interface to do so as we would have our other systems do this automatically using an employee-provided Markdown file.

It is most likely a bug. Can you please open an issue to track it and I will look at it.
