No. That's the default behaviour. Usually one should not care that much.

The more extended settings are used to accommodate particular  
circumstances, you either optimise a few things or try to adapt to  
deficiencies. Or it's meant as a lesson.

As Bruno mentioned: when you have a large JPG image of some ten MB  
then it's more sane not to use it but something smaller (could be  
achieved with file.extension, too).

I can imagine that it might make sense to use, while setting up a  
text, small lossy compressed JPEG's that are fast loaded and  
displayed and sent via eMail and then use in the final release  
colourful loss-less graphics. You and others still can have a good  
impression of the final work ...
