Just a guess, it's probably going this because Microsofts MCE doesn't 
like transport being returned on multiple offsets from the carrier, they 
prefer locking on center (even though they continue to search both sides 
even if the center locked with transport).

Typically vendors fake this out to satisfy MCE in the driver. Maybe this 
was done in the hardware instead... switching off the range/search lock 
capability. Perhaps it's driven by the eeprom.

Which demodulator is it using?
