Why is WD hiding the Spread Spectrum Clocking info on the label?

Why is WD hiding the fact that newer drives support enabling spread spectrum clocking (SSC)? Unless of course the newer drives no longer support SSC? If that’s the case, are the jumper pins just there for decoration?

Being able to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI) as much as possible is a good thing surely? Less EMI means better stability and less Wi-Fi interference etc.

WD staff, if you are reading this: if all of your desktop drives support enabling SSC by jumpering pins 1 and 2, then please advertise this on the drive label on EVERY drive you manufacture.
