Disabling fill gaps


it seems like it is not possible to disable the "fill gaps" option. I have unchecked "gap filling by compulsion" but in the output I still see that gaps are being filled in the "Fill %" variable.
Is this intended behavior? If yes is there a different way to disable the fill gaps step?

Thank your for your time and effort!

Fill% has, in principle, nothing to do with gap filling itself. It is an occurence across samples in group. If MS-DIAL was able to determine a feature in 3 samples of 5, then this value will be 0.6 or 60%.

Gap filling can help to increase this count, searching automatically in a certain range of the known feature with eased parameters. Hiroshi can, of course, correct me.
