Edge flange: bend line not in right place?

So I sketched a rectangle, turned it into sheet metal, and applied an edge flange to it, 90 degrees, with flange position set to Material Inside. (Why? I'm reverse engineering an existing part, and I know the outside dimension, thickness, and bend radius, and I'm assuming k=0.5) It looks correct in 3D, but when I make a drawing from the part and show the flat view, the bend line does not appear in the right place. In fact, it appears in the middle of the bend. Here's a drawing.

Now, if I were to make this part and stick it in a brake, that bend line wouldn't do me any good. How can I get it to appear where expected, at 0.163?

 

Thanks!
