New Roland FP-30 - odd thing I noticed...

Hi all!

I want to learn piano, and chose a Roland FP-30 (it was that or a Yamaha P-125, and I liked the feel and sound of the Roland better).

I don't know much about electric pianos, but I did notice something unusual about this one.

I played each note in turn, and found that all keys up to and including F#6, when released, decay very quickly. G6 and above decay more slowly, with ringing overtones. It is a very marked difference between those two notes.

I'm guessing this was some decision made by this piano's designers, but I can't guess why that would be. Is it trying to mimic some physical condition of real pianos? Does anyone know?

EDIT: I also posted this question on Reddit, and got my answer, so nevermind here. :)
