Commit Table as creates NativeX UTF-16 in MapInfo Pro

Issue

Commit Table as creates NativeX UTF-16 in MapInfo Pro.

1 - Open any native table in MapInfo Pro
2 - Run the below code from the MapBasic Window:
select COL1,count(*) from TableInfo(1,1) group by COL1 order by COL1 into reftable
commit table reftable as "C:\reftable.tab"

3 - Edit the TAB file in a text editor, in the header it states: 
 
!table 
!version 1520 
!charset UTF-16 

Definition Table 
Type NATIVEX Charset "UTF-16" 

This occurs despite the MapInfo Pro preferences being set to native tables
