Pretty sure this is as designed,

I also agree that this is so annoying and should be treated as a bug. I understand that an addon needs to be in enabled mode to finish tasks or to start tasks after an upgrade. But at least give us an indication of that the addon was previously disabled before the upgrade has run. A visual cue is enough.

I agree with this. I use a few add-ons that can be very helpful for troubleshooting user questions and the like but do not need to be enabled all the time. Among other things, some of these clutter up the icons bar below a post and create a messy look to the forum.

If an add-on is disabled before an upgrade, it should revert to disabled after the upgrade.
