Epicor mobile access updatable dashboard allows me to change custom job head fields without unreleasing and unengineering the job

Is this normal behavior?
In the updatable BAQ and the updatable dashboard in the full epicor client, I have to unrelease and unengineer the job before I can change the field jobhead.userinteger1, then release and engineer it again, otherwise I get an error.
However, once I deployed this to epicor mobile access (EMA), the users are now able to change the field and click save with no errors and the change goes through.

My users prefer the EMA method due to this, but is this a glitch or can I expect this functionality to not change?
