Simulation Mass Properties is incorrect

SW Simulation 2017:  My situation is detailed in the attached power point.

 

Summary is that when I input a remote load/mass in lb using the remote load/mass feature, the "Simulation Mass properties" calculator basically assumes the load/mass entered is in kg, despite me using english units when I enter the load/mass.

 

So the FEM will kick out the correct reactions/forces/moments/etc., but the calculated value of the "Simulation Mass Properties" is not correct.

 

Can anyone confirm or deny this bug?
