Why does weld bead size in the model not match the callout?

When I create weld beads, the size represented in the model doesn't match the size I specified, or the resulting callout. For example, if I create a weld bead with a radius of 0.5in, the model shows a fillet weld with a radius of .325.

The old 'Fillet Bead' feature gives you a representation in the model that matches the size you specify.

 

Why do they behave differently, and can I change this?

 

Thanks
