FileMaker Server assigns wrong privileges to backup files

I'm running FileMaker Server 16.0.4 on MacOS 10.13.4. Under Schedules, FileMaker Server is set up to make daily backps of all hosted databases. It makes those backups as scheduled, but assigns the incorrect permissions to the backup files.

 

For example, a hosted database will have these permissions:

Owner[me] Read & Write

Group fmsadmin Read & Write

Everyone No Access

 

But the backed up version of that same database will have these permissions:

Owner fmserver Read & Write

Group fmsadmin Read & Write

Everyone Read Only

 

The permissions on the backup folder are Everyone No Access, so it's not coming from there. I also tried setting a umask 006 on the server, but that didn't fix the Everyone permission.

 

Does anyone know how to make FileMaker Server respect permissions when backing up files? (The big problem is its granting everyone read access; changing the owner to fmserver is no big deal.)
