On "Move Issue: Update Fields" screen non-required custom fields are displayed

When I move an issue to a particular project a couple of custom fields are displayed on the "Move Issue: Update Fields" screen that are not required on issue creation in that project. 

The documentation states that:

You will only be prompted to enter the values for required custom fields in the target project that are missing values. If the custom fields of your original project also exist in your target project, and these custom fields are not required in the target project, you may need to set values for them, to move the issue successfully. If you wish to change the existing values for other fields on your issue, you can do this after the move is complete.

However the unwanted custom fields are not required on issue creation. They are part of the target project's Field Configuration scheme (defined with project contexts not a global context), but I don't want these  fields to appear on this initial screen when moving issues.

These are the unwanted fields:

* CSI Subtask type: is only required during a particular workflow transition and only appears on that workflow transition screen (in the target project). Is not displayed on issue creation, view or edit screens in target project.

* Support tier: is set via a post-function in workflow transitions (user is never prompted to enter). Is not required. Is only ever displayed on the Issue View screen (not on Create, Edit or transition screens). 

I can hide the fields by removing from the Field Config scheme or setting to "Hidden" in this scheme - but then they can't be used in the project.

Any suggestions or ideas why these fields and not others with similar characteristics are showing up? 

thanks, Sandra
