I will correct you, look in Notes/Rests->Select Duration

I think that is worth a bug report. You can search in the Command Center

you write as if to indicate you have discovered a change in behavior: it
is a bug if you have. We do not have the option to change the behavior
of commands in Denemo, since they could be in use by other's scripts
which would then break. So please report any such bug. (The downside is
we have a lot of obsolete (hidden) commands, which still work when
invoked. Please report any bugs you find (commands deleted, or altered
in semantics).

Thanks for the feedback.
