[O] Enginnering notation in tables exported to LaTeX

when exporting to LaTeX, numbers expressed in engineering notation
contained in tables are transformed into a quite confusing notation:
1.234e5 becomes 1.234\,(5) which is rendered by LaTeX as 1.234 (5) with
the space being a very narrow one. This notation is confusing because it
is usually used (at l;east in physical sciences) to indicate uncertainty.

I haven't found mention of this in the manual. There is a way to
disable, or customize this conversion?

Thank you. Cheers,
