External URL Images with S3 Uploads enabled - where should images live?


Looking at an old post - Does external URL images in post get saved a copy on my server? - when images are copied to a post, rather than uploaded, they are stored locally on the server.

I have S3 uploads enabled and a CDN enabled and am seeing that copied/pasted images in a post remain on the server rather than being uploaded to S3. Is this the expected behaviour?

I have had to implement a CDN behaviour to direct any requests to uploads/default/* to the server.

Thanks in advance.
