Move-PWDocumentsToFolder resetting the state of Superseded documents to WIP


One of our PW admins recently requested support from Bentley with respect to moving a significant number of files to a different folder within the same project whilst maintaining the document status.  The support response pointed us towards the Move-PWDocumentsToFolder cmdlet and I wrote a script using that to move the files.  This works pretty well except that the previous versions of files, which are at Superseded-WIP or Superseded-Shared before the move, are reset to show "Work in Progress".  The previous version otherwise remains un-editable, like a superseded file. Both the source and destination folders have the same environments so the same states are applicable. 

Is this status reset for superseded files intended?  Is there any way to maintain the original state when moving these files using the cmdlet?
