Can you turn off the automated assignee feature in JIRA Agile?

Is there a way to turn off the feature that automatically updates the asignee when you move an issue in JIRA Agile so that it stays as the same assignee?

You can remove the checkmark for the option "Auto assign - Enable the auto assign on card transition in the TaskBoard" in the JIRA Agile Configuration of the plugin (Administration - Plugins section). But this is a setting for all boards.

And it only is for classic boards...

For rapid boards IMO there is no such automatism. If the assignee is changed, it's done by a postfunction of the corresponding workflow transition. In this case, you have to change the workflow postfunction.
