Mozdok NDB's don't change for runway heading

Whilst re-learning the L-39, I found that the ADF instructions for the landing pattern referenced the NDB bearing, but it was off by about 30 degrees during the pattern.

 

On the next fly-through of the mission, I then took notice of the fact that I heard the NDB beacon warnings for the Inner and Outer markers as I was climbing out from the take-off from Runway 08.

 

From my understanding, the NDB beacons are supposed to be automatically switched based on the current runway direction being used, but maybe I (and the training mission) am missing something and there is a simple switch to select it.

 

The mission is the stock L39-Training-2-Circular Pattern mission, and a track file linked.

 

For my own curiosity, following this post, I set up aircraft at all of the airfields in Russia with NDB's at both ends of the runway, and they all behaved the same way.

Hi

 

The markers in DCS are activated based on wind direction, so it will be from the active runway side only.

That’s what I thought, but it’s not happening. In the track attached, the aircraft starts on the runway into a 3 m/s wind and the active beacons are in front of the aircraft. The same is true, of Krasnodar, Anapa, Maykop. Regardless of the wind direction, the same NDB beacons are active.

 

I set an aircraft on the runway in the ME, set the wind direction from the East and the beacons to the East of Mozdok are active. Edit the mission and change the wind direction by 180 degrees to come from the West, and the aircraft starts from the opposite end of the runway, but the same beacons on the East end of the runway are active.
