X-PLOR vs Hydrogens

I wonder if anyone could explain to me what X-PLOR
is doing to protons in 'brefinement.inp'?!?

We are currently running X-PLOR v3.8.43. 

The reason I am concerned is that the B-factors assigned
to the protons appear to be the 'refined overall B-factor'
from the beginning of the job, which isn't particularly
appropriate.  Shouldn't the assigned value more closely
approximate a 'riding model' under the assumption that
the B-factor of a particular proton will be pretty closely
related to the B-factor of the heavier atom to which it 
is attached?
