JAWS reports (ARIA) Expanded/collapsed when Tabs.collapsible = false

In trying to make an app particularly accessible (test user is using JAWS). The tabs with collapsible = false (the default), adds aria-expanded attributes when this would only apply to collapsible = true. This ends up being confusing to a sight-impaired user as JAWS announces the following (sample from JAWS speech history):

"Data Tab selected **collapsed** 3 of 3 **expanded**"

Bolded elements are the issue.

The selected attribute is expected and helpful. Suggest only adding the aria-expanded attrib when collapsible = true.
