Yes, it's supposed to act that way. It's sort of how the randomize button works, but it doesn't randomize the gender (as its chosen, obviously). It's just a simple way of giving it more of a function rather than just choose a gender and do nothing else beyond that.
The copy on Praise and those up on Dropbox/Google Drive are the same, so no worries there. The GitHub repo is a bit more updated, but it hasn't seen that much that warrants an actual update, I think.
That's a planned feature, so look forward to it in the future.
