If you did olpc-update then you can hold a game key to boot back into
your 8.2.0 build and see if things were the same there. (if so, it
makes sense for that preference to have been copied)

Because it is a bit of a hack, aimed at deployments only. I don't
think it will be presented as an update until the feature is properly
implemented in sugar. Feel free to brush up the release notes.
