Can "transfer material from profile" be turned off by default in structural members?

As I use the same profile shapes in parts having different grades of steel or stainless steel, I don't usually want the material transferred from the profile's library file.

But usually, it selects this option by default, so I have to de-select it (if I notice it's happened).

Furthermore, when I edit a structural member feature to change a profile, it almost always tries to turn on "transfer material..." even if it was off previoiusly.

Furthermore, when I de-select "Transfer Material from Profile", I sometimes find that the material definition has now been removed from the entire part (not always.)

Some of my library files do not have a material defined, but they give me trouble too (not always. But anyway, I'm not excited about the idea of editing a whole weldment profile library to remove the material from each file...)

Am I missing an off-by-default setting, or should this be an enhancement request?
