why the dots on the kanban board are not resetting


If this is an existing ticket then my apologies for raising it again. 

On my Kanban board I see a row of dots at the bottom of each card. These dots represent 'days in column'. However, the dots don't seem to reset when the task is transitioned. 

Example - I have a task in my TODAY column. It stays there for 10 days and the dots show fully across the card. I move the task to my 'With Client' column (the dots show blank which is correct). A couple of days later I move the task back to my TODAY column and the dots show all the way across the card again. 

Should I be expecting to see the 'days in column' value reset when transitioning out of the column?

Folks using Jira Server or Data Center may want to check out this related KB article:

When the "Days in column" setting is enabled, an incorrect number of dots is displayed in the Sprint cards

Thanks for the link Michal but I'm not sure that helps me answer my question. I can see that there is a 'number of days' value but once I move the task out of that column, I would expect the value to reset. It doesn't seem to do that. I would prefer not to comment on the ticket as it seems to be talking about a different use-case. 

Thanks again
