idp 3.3.2, SP wants transient and persistent ID's

A non Shibboleth SP is requesting nameid's like so:


but our idp is only releasing transient,

"Note that unlike in V2, the transient or persistent identifiers produced by the new V3 generation service are not treated as attributes and are not release-controlled via an attribute filter<> policy. Rather, transients are viewed as harmless (because they are merely one-time values) and persistent identifiers cannot be generated without configuring an appropriate source attribute or other properties."

I'm confident that we are producing persistentID's as I can query them in the database.

I tested with aacli, the result for the metadata above is no attributes, should I be able to view persistent ID's as 'traditional' attributes with a clean install 3.3.2
