Can I use the Release Burndown chart retroactively?

Can I use the Release Burndown chart retroactively? For example I have four prior sprints and a current sprint. Can I add stories/tasks, from my four prior sprints, to a release and then generate a Release Burndown chart?

When I tried this in JIRA I see the my active sprint in the Release Burndown report but my four prior sprints are absent. The JIRA Labs parallel sprints feature was enabled when I defined my release and was subsequently is disabled in an effort to get my prior sprints into my Release Burndown report.

In my experience, the Release Burndown chart will only calculate the Stories included in an Active Sprint that is configured on that current board.
