BIAS FX 2 Volume drop when amp block disabled

I'm running into this issue in BIAS FX 2 (v18.104.22.16840 now but I've noticed in previous versions too) where if I turn the amp blocks off then the plugin cuts the volume of the input significantly. I'm setting the amp block volume to roughly unity with the input signal but when I disable it, there is a sharp drop that even boosting the output slider up to 6 does not compensate for.
I would expect the plugin to keep unity gain when I engage no amps or effects and have both input and output sliders at 0.
Anyone else getting this?
After a little more playing around in Ableton I've worked out it's exactly a 12db drop. This means you can get perfect unity gain by maxxing both the input and output sliders to "+6" according to the labels. I think what this means is that the input and ouput sliders are basically mis-labelled? They're both actually cut only where "0" is -6db. Not sure why positive grid have done this, I like to know what's going on with gain staging in my plugins and this sort of thing really isn't helpful.
