Android Sign step defaults to jarsigner rather than apksigner

I noticed that when I add the latest version (1.7.6) of the Android Sign step to a workflow, the Enables apksigner option is defaulting to false. Because of this, when I do a build I end up getting a v1 signature, and my Pixel 6 refuses to install the APK, with the error adb: failed to install myapp.apk: Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES: Scanning Failed.: No signature found in package of version 2 or newer for package com.myapp]

I would expect Enables apksigner to default to true so I can get a valid signature for recent devices.
