Does Gazebo 7 Ignore the SDF Pose Element for Fixed Joints?

I believe the answer is yes but wanted to make sure. My SDF joint definition is as follows:

<joint name='myJoint' type='fixed'>
  <parent>parent_link</parent>
  <child>child_link</child>
  <pose>0 0 0 0 0 0</pose>
</joint>

I can change the <pose> element to be any arbitrary value and Gazebo 7 would show the robot as if the joint still had zero pose. Is this expected?
