Multiplayer contemporary move

I noticed that during a game if another player interact with an item on the map my screen moves to the point where the other player made a change.
If I have a large map (bigger of my screen) or I’m in a zoomed portion of this, and we are playing live, contemporary with other players of my team, every time one of them do something and my screen change to center in the other portion of the map.
Can this be avoidable?

This is a VASSAL tickbox preference called “Center on opponent’s moves?”. With the module open, go into preferences and turn it off.
