Why does Quicken Mac randomly rename downloaded transactions?

I downloaded credit card transactions and saw an entry for "Burger King", which I haven't been to in perhaps 5 years. Looking at the transaction in the detail window, I see that that actual payee in the download was "BURGER INC NYC".

I don't have any renaming rules or quickfill transactions that would match "Burger".

It seems that Quicken has stupidly looked for the first payee (which happened to be "Burger King") that matched the first word in the downloaded transaction ("BURGER") and selected this. This is with the latest version: Version 5.14.3 (Build 514.31897.100)

I suppose this is another in the endless series of bugs introduced by the developers adding "features" instead of restoring the functionality that we all enjoyed with the 2007 version.
