CodeKit 2 replacing hostname instances with preview URL

After settings up a new project for a quick static build using CodeKit 2, I noticed some strange (and buggy) behaviour an interesting feature.

It appears that when previewing a project through CodeKit 2’s preview, it replaces all instances of the hostname specified in the project’s “External Server Address” with the preview URL.

In my case, I’d set up my host in MAMP Pro as “GWAC”, pointing to this in CodeKit 2’s
“External Server Address”

Wherever the string “GWAC” appears in my files, it is replaced with CodeKit’s preview URL. ie:

This is expected behaviour. Makes sense:
