Block based backups incrementals show up as full in mminfo?

I'm working on scripts to clone our backups, and using mminfo to select saveset IDs for cloning.

We are using agent block based backups on our standalone Windows 2012 R2 servers, because their are very many small files, we don't need to index hundreds of thousands into the millions of these small files.

When I run mminfo to select full backups that ran over the weekend  (2 days, Friday & Saturday) I get duplicates for these savesets... Friday night backups are Full backups, Saturday are Incremental, and the email of the backup run says so too, but mminfo shows the Full backup saveset runs AND the incremental saveset runs as "Full".

This is in the results email:

devsedarc0.ciesin.columbia.edu:F:\, level=incr, size 3741 GB, duration 0 hours 18 minutes 29 seconds, 1 files

But I can see the mminfo output from this query:

mminfo  -q "savetime<06/30/2018 23:59:59,savetime>06/29/2018 00:00:00,level=full"  > /tmp/sslist.txt

grepped for devsedarc0:

VLAN37.001     devsedarc0.ciesin.columbia.edu 06/30/2018 3741 GB full F:\

Note that the size, 3741 GB matches the incremental line from the email...

Is this a feature or an annoyance?

Edit -- Networker version 9.1 ... target is Data Domain 6300.
