"Levels follow expression value" in Layer trait

I notice this field (Levels follow expression value) has a beanshell button and lets me create a beanshell expression, but it does not enclose the expression in curly braces (no { }). Is this an omission, or does it mean this field has unusual behavior?

I think it was just an omission by whoever implemented that field. Similarly the Calculated Property one doesn’t have the curly braces.

I was assuming the lack of braces was to indicate that the field is always a BeanShell expression; it can’t be an “old-style” expression.
