XF 2.2 Unable to disable attachment upload for "Moderating" user group


I want to disable uploading of attachments for all users, so I set the "Upload attachments to posts" permission to "No" for all user groups

However I notice that users belonging to "Moderating" user group are still allowed to upload attachments.

The only way I can disable attachments on the "Moderating" user group, is to set it to "Never"

I don't have this problem for normal user groups and "Administrative" user group.

Is it the intended behavior?

There may be user specific permissions.

Use the permission analyser on a moderator account to determine how the final value is being set.

I would check the specific forum you're testing against in the permission analyzer, to account for for whether there are node-specific permissions.

Beyond that, there could potentially be an add-on involved, so it might be worth confirming with add-ons disabled.
