Yes, that's what's going on. E2fsprogs v1.41.12 does not have the
code to clear those fields in the superblock; that code was added in

(There have also been a ****huge**** number of bug fixes since May
2010, which is when 1.41.12 was released, so I'd strongly suggest that
you upgrade to a newer version of e2fsprogs. In particular DON'T try
resizing an an ext4 file system, either on-line or off-line with a
version of e2fsprogs that ancient; there is a very good chance you
will badly corrupt the file system.)
