Why are relays in timer mode even though the system only has a "Maintain" group?

Relays being in timer mode even though the system only has a "Maintain" group (no Maintain+Timer or Maintain+Blink Group) would mean that the lowest numbered relay of the lowested numbered LCP does not have a timer, but the rest of the relays in the group do. 

A Maintain+Timer or Maintain+Blink group only shows the relay property (timer value) of the lowest numbered relay of the lowest numbered LCP in a group. 

If the lowest numbered relay of the lowest numbered LCP does not have a timer, the group will show that it's just a Maintain group. 

If the lowest numbered relay of the lowest numbered LCP has a 2 hour timer, the group will show that it's a Maintain+Timer or Maintain+Blink group with a 2 hour timer even though the other relays can possibly have a different timer value programmed in it's property.

This situation is not common because changing the timer value through the group and saving it will write the same value to all the relays in the group. One will have to go to relay properties to change the timer values on the relays individually.
