That was my understanding.
They locked the controls, configs, everything so that it ran the "default" no matter what you did. I had to unpack the game files, mod the files, and then re-pack them to get my controls. I am very finicky with my controls, I seriously have to play a certain way or it messes up my entire style. lol I have probably one of the oldest known configs, it's a variation of asdw that was started back in the Quake days before most games shipped with the standard.
