Does using @ mentions send a JIRA notification and a customer notification?

I opened up a request and the assignee mentioned me in the comments. I received a customer notification and JIRA notification because they used the '@' mention. I am a JIRA admin so is that why I received both notifications? 

We have this JIRA setting in place:

Since you are the reporter you will get the customer notification.  If the user had just posted a comment without the @ mention then you would have only received the customer notification without and the Jira comment notification would have been ignored.  Since they actually used the @ mention they initiated a Jira notification as well that you also received on top of the comment notification.    

I opened a second ticked by using my personal email address so JIRA sees the reporter as my personal email address, not me as the user. The assignee used the @ mention functionality and I only received one customer notification, not both. Any thoughts on that?

Your personal account does not have a Jira license so internal communications would never be sent to it.
