How to get the Monitoring Console to correctly identify the knowledge bundle replication policy as "cascading"?

We are trying to test out the new "cascading" option for the knowledge bundle replication policy. We have sat the replication policy on the search head to "cascading" in distsearch.conf, and have sat a new pass4SymmKey on the indexers for the cascading replication in server.conf, as described in the docs.

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.6/DistSearch/Cascadingknowledgebundlereplication

However, in the Monitoring Console, on the page "Search > Knowledge Bundle Replication  > Cascading Replication", the indexers still says that the  replication policy is "classic", not "cascading". The search head correctly identifies as "cascading", but not the indexers.

How to get the Monitoring Console to correctly identify the knowledge bundle replication policy on the indexers as "cascading"?

Is the check only looking for the setting "replicationPolicy = cascading"? If so, the indexers will always "fail" the check, as this setting is not applied on the indexers, as far as I understand.
