Trouble with Sketched Bend

I am having unexpected results when using the sketched bend tool. I am using the Solidworks API to make a sheet metal part through creating a flat pattern, then sketching

the bends. When I try to bend the selected sketch line, shown in the next two pictures

, Solidworks extends the bendline across the bend relief zone, as shown below:

Any idea why this is happening and how I could prevent this, while still using the sketched bend feature?

 

Thanks.
