Why, oh why, do they download so?

Trying to figure out why, after turning automatic downloads off, the Apple Podcast app continues to… download shows! Am I missing a setting somewhere? Is this a case of whack-a-mole amongst my various iDevices?

How many devices do you have with the Podcasts app? Are they all set to not download new episodes? I would think (no evidence) that if one device downloaded the episode, the other devices would sync to that.

Three iOS devices (iPad 5, 9, and iPhone) a Mac and two Apple TVs… which, as I type and think about it, I haven’t checked to see what (if any) setting those are on…
