Unfilled polygon symbology not maintained when exporting to KML

Unfilled polygons in ArcMap are filled in an exported KML.

 

Symbolize a polygon layer in ArcMap with a border only, and a null fill color.  Export with the Layer to KML tool.  Add the KMZ back into ArcMap and the polygon has a white fill. 

 

The KML file has the tag

    <PolyStyle>
      <color>00ffffff</color>
 
rather than this:
    <PolyStyle>
      <fill>0</fill>

 

Documentation states that "The layer symbology will be used as the KML symbol." but this is clearly not the case.

 

Bug or feature?
