Elasticsearch changing scaled_float to float by itself?

I've recently noticed that a field I had declared as a scaled float is now a float. I'm not sure how this happened, but my guess is that elasticsearch did it automatically when a value that exceeded the precision was indexed: is this possible?

There's another field that was supposed to be a long that is now an int. Very confusing.
