Poll SCM results in a Pipeline run every interval (unnecessarily)

Details

    Description

      My Jenkinsfile includes an SCMTrigger pipelineTrigger for polling SCM for changes:

      properties([
          [$class: 'jenkins.model.BuildDiscarderProperty', strategy: [$class: 'LogRotator', numToKeepStr: '96']],
          pipelineTriggers([[$class:"SCMTrigger", scmpoll_spec:"H/10 * * * *"]]),
      ])
      

      This repository is used via a GitHub Organization Folder on ci.jenkins.io, and seems to believe that changes are being made every ten minutes (per the scmpoll_spec above, despite no such changes being made.

      See screenshots for more context

      This results in an aggressive waste of resources in our Jenkins environment
