FI document generated from GR even though GR - no valuated indicator is set


When I create a PO order and I select the GR no valuated indicator, I am expecting that no FI documents are created once I recieve the material (only the inventory quantity should increase). Basically, I want it to act like a UB STO at the time of GR....

However, even though no price is showing on the PO, when I complete a GR a FI document is created and is a posting to the inventory account based on the receiving plant MBEW price....

PO showing U and no price

GR no valuated is selected

FI document which was created after GR shows a .12 cent amount

This amount is coming from accounting view of receiving plant ( 122/1000)

This same thing happens also when I check the "free item" indicator on the PO.

Is there a reason why this would be acting like this or how I can prevent this FI document generation? Is there a way to prevent the creation of FI document from GR via a BADI/Exit? The closest I could find was include MM07MFF9_F_BELEG_ERGAENZEN but I dont think thats really the right place.

Note - I did find a similar issue through the below thread :

    if you have a standard price valuated material, then the receipt is valuated at standard price, and the variance between the standard price and the PO price goes to a difference account. That was always so, no matter if the PO has a free of charge indicator active.

    for me it is even questionable how you could get an active GR non-valuated indicator for an inventoried item. I have never seen this before.

    Non-valuated GR was from my experience always only possible for account assigned purchases.

    But this indicator if probably automatically coming if you have a zero price in the PO.

    As said it has no impact on GR valuation because of standard price evaluation.

      Would it be possible or make more sense to attempt to stop the FI document creation during the GR posting process instead... possible during the GR it calls the same function as which is called during the MIGO of a UB STO ? Or if thats not possible then override the costs with zero values?
