Is there a way to stop the auto linking in Confluence that links strings like "rXXXX" with Jira?

For example, the following strings without quotes get linked apparently to Jira: "r99286", "r1", "r77". If the "r" is upper case, the system won't link it. I'm looking for a way to turn this functionality off, ideally on a page by page basis. I have some strings in a Confluence page that contain such sequences but have nothing to do with Jira data.
