AutoCAD units set by display model

Just learned that a setting in Map display models sets the units in AutoCAD (command: _units) when generating graphics.

command: _units
That caused some confusion on my side as my drawing template has been set up in "Meters" and after generating graphics AutoCAD units were set to "Millimeters".

The culprit can be found in TBDMMAP file an is called - surprise, surprise - <Units>:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<DisplayModelMap xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="1.3.0">

According to Product Support current AutoCAD units are being used for the setting when display model is saved for the first time.

Just don't know why most of my DM have "Meters" as setting an only one "Millimeters"....
