Stopping Mojave from adding apps to dock?

After I upgraded to Mojave I noticed that every time I downloaded a new app, or even updated an old one, it would be placed in my Dock and I’d need to manually remove it. This just happened again this morning when I downloaded a minor update to A Better Finder Rename, an app I’ve been using for years but never once put in my Dock.

Is there some setting to stop macOS from doing this?

Those are your recently used apps.


Perfect. (I should have looked there.)
