Refresh remote status does not respect application-wide setting


I'm using SourceTree 3.2.1 (build 225) on OSX 10.14.6.

When I open a repo, it automatically fetches from the remote. I have DISABLED this in the application-wide settings, under "Check default remotes for updates every XX minutes".

Under the repository's advanced settings, I also see an option for "Refresh remote status in background (if enabled in global preferences)". This is enabled, but it clearly says this should be ignored if disabled in global preferences.

So why is my repo still auto-fetching from remote?
