Not a Custom Format upgrade for existing episode?

Sonarr version (exact version):
.NET version: 6.0.13
OS: Linux
Debug logs:
Description of issue:
I’m fetching a Silo.S01E01.Freedom.Day.2160p.ATVP.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.HDR.H.265-NTb.mkv episode.
Sonarr attempts an episode upgrade but gets stuck on import with the log message:

New file's custom formats [ATVP, HDR, WEB Tier 01] do not improve on [ATVP, DV HDR10, WEB Tier 01], skipping
Not a Custom Format upgrade for existing episode file(s)

It’s obvious that a new download is really not an upgrade, that’s clear.
I wonder why it attempts to upgrade if a new download is not better to begin with?
