gpgsm 1.9.22 supports no RC2 Algorithm ?

I searched the internet for clarifications on how SMimeCapabilities should 
be used. I found that S/MIME Version 3.1 specifically says that NULLs 
should not be used to encode parameters.


"The registered SMIMECapabilities list specifies the parameters for OIDs 
that need them, most notably key lengths in the case of variable-length 
symmetric ciphers. In the event that there are no differentiating 
parameters for a particular OID, the parameters MUST be omitted, and MUST 
NOT be encoded as NULL."

However, as seen in, 
gpgsm (at least in 1.9.92) generates NULLs.
