Mono Tracks on Stereo Master - PREMIERE PRO CC 2020

So I've been having an unusual "problem" (possible "feature) with PP CC 2020 (), that I hadn't noticed on any previous version of the software:

Whenever I import MONO tracks on a STEREO timeline, the peak dB level for the mono track decreases while playing it back from the Stereo timeline.

 

Example: I have a dialogue mono track at 48kHz with a peak dB level of -1.0 dB. When dragging it into the 48kHz Stereo Timeline, the peak level is outputted and played back on the gain monitor as -4.0 dB.

 

Why is this? Is it a bug? Or is a strange new "feature" included with the 2020 builds? If so, can someone include any tutorial links or explain to me how this works? 

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

Larry does a great job of explaining it. Yea, seems weird but makes sense according to the math behind the scenes.
