Why is no using report generated if the group is started at the interface "GEBG"?

Is a group started at the group faceplate (button "Start"), an using report is inserted into the alarm archive (it is configureable meaning as well disconnectable). If a group is however started at the interface "GEBG", generally there is no using report.

This behavior is desired. A using report shows when the group was used by the operator. If someone starts a group via the interface "GEBG", then the start was triggered by the application program not over an action by the operator.
