Is_Simple returns FALSE for any feature class in the root of SDE

If I create a Feature Class in python (arcpy.CreateFeatureclass_management) in SDE (just in the root, not inside a Feature Dataset), I am getting "FALSE" from sde.IS_SIMPLE in SQL Server. I thought a new Feature Class would be simple. I'm getting the same "FALSE" for any Feature Class in the root of the GDB on SQL Server, but I get "TRUE" for features in Feature Datasets.


Here's the python code I used to create the feature:


arcpy.CreateFeatureclass_management(out_path="Database Connections/sde_conn.sde",out_name="test_fc",geometry_type="POINT",template="#",has_m="DISABLED",has_z="DISABLED",spatial_reference="GEOGCS['GCS_WGS_1984',DATUM['D_WGS_1984',SPHEROID['WGS_1984',6378137.0,298.257223563]],PRIMEM['Greenwich',0.0],UNIT['Degree',0.0174532925199433]];-400 -400 1000000000;-100000 10000;-100000 10000;8.98315284119522E-09;0.001;0.001;IsHighPrecision",spatial_grid_1="0",spatial_grid_2="0",spatial_grid_3="0")


In SSMS, I run SELECT sde.IS_SIMPLE('dbo', 'test_fc') and it returns FALSE. I was expecting a new feature class to return TRUE. Does the FALSE here make sense?
