Yes, though there is a good reason for this: some instruments are transposing and playback at a different pitch from the written one. The transpose amount applies to all staffs and so if made absolute would break those.
Workaround: check first via built-in staff properties what the current transpose is for a non-transposing instrument in your score.

In Windows 10, if I set Movements>Playback>Transpose on Playback to say -5. then it plays a fourth lower than the music as written. If I then select -2 it plays a fifth lower than the written music, whereas I would expect it to play a tone lower.
