If it is unchecked, I presume it means that fast forward *is* enabled,
which is what you see. Try checking that option.

I can only imagine that at one point, you've pushed same commit to develop
and master, and from that point onward, git merge happily does fast forward.
Try making dummy commit on develop, push it, make it sure it's only on develop
and do no-ff merge to master.
