Sourcetree open submodule command

I cloned a repository (having 2 submodules) and I disabled the option "Recurse submodules" in the Advanced options before cloning.

After that I selected one of the 2 submodules and selected the Open option.

I noticed in the logging that not only the selected submodule was cloned but also the other one, which was not my intention.

Is sourcetree trying to be smart without telling me as a user? If so: how ?

Why is sourctree not asking me whether or not I want to clone ALL the submodules ?
