Yep, you're right. I missed this code path.

Meh? (stealing a famous quote).
This is backward-incompatible in the fact that forcibly-written FPWs
would be compressed all the time, even if FPW is set to off. The
documentation of the previous patches also mentioned that images are
compressed only if this parameter value is switched to compress.
