The DocumentCapability.Default value for the Fields property is equal to DocumentCapability.Enabled, so that the fields are available for a document currently loaded in the RichEditControl.

Set the RichEditControlCompatibility.LoadHyperlinkAsField property to false before calling the InitializeComponent method to correct this behavior and allow loading hyperlinks when loading fields is disabled.
