Referenced assembly checkout issues

We have an issue with a referenced assembly being automatically checked out even though it's in Approved state (no check-out rights). The user will put a sub-part or sub-assembly into Pending ECN state and then check it out, and PDM checks out the reference assembly automatically, even though it's in Approved state and the user has no check-out rights.

I agree that technically we should be putting the referenced assembly into the Pending state as well, but why would PDM automatically check out the referenced file?

Is there a setting somewhere for this?
