Replication issue with 'preferred server' field changes

In the replication settings of a Notes mail file in R6, if the field 'preferred server' is changed on a local copy, the same server copy field also appears changed on the replication settings without the occurrence of replication. Why does this happen?
I have no idea how this could happen. I suspect that replication has occurred, without you realizing it. In fact, it would be impossible for the server copy to change without replication (of some kind). Imagine that you made the change while using your laptop on an airplane. There is no way the server copy is going to change until you re-synchronize (replicate) back in the office.
