I think that pretty clearly says that this feedback reduction only occurs 
while overdub is on. When you turn overdub off again, the feedback returns 
to whatever you had it set to before.

Then you must have set the feedback to a different level in some other 
It had nothing to do with turning off overdub. You might have had the 
feedback knob turned down less than 100% before you started, or you some 
how reduced it afterwards.
