OTA updates: "checkAutomatically": "ON_ERROR_RECOVERY" updating automatically

Setting updates.checkAutomatically to "ON_ERROR_RECOVERY" in app.json is not preventing Expo from automatically fetching the latest update every time my app is launched. When build is completed, Updates.fetchUpdateAsync(); receives isAvailable true, but when app launches, app updates automatically kicks-in with no possibility for the user to accept it. Any suggestion to make it so Expo prevents the automatic update?

The built app.json update settings running on the devices are:

"updates": {
      "checkAutomatically": "ON_ERROR_RECOVERY",
      "fallbackToCacheTimeout": 0
