Param Automation (Stepped vs. Smooth)

In creating automation clips for a couple of Malstrom parameters, I noticed that clicking with the pencil to create Oscillator Index automation produces steps, while clicking in a Filter Cutoff clip produces a smooth slope.

The manual (page 86, right column) is rather dodgy about explaining the difference. Since Index can vary from 0 to 127 just like envelope attack or a lot of other parameters, I'm wondering why the automation editing thinks Index should be stepped.

Is this a bug?

Is there a complete list anywhere of which parameters will be stairstepped when edited and which will have smooth diagonal lines in response to two pencil-clicks at the ends of the line?

(This is for a tutorial article I'm writing for Remix mag, so I'm hoping to learn the exact technical details.)
