Default Is Spark icon always displayed, even in non Spark areas?

Whenever I'm on LTE I see the spinning Spark icon next to LTE. I don't believe I am in a Spark area and am wondering if it just shows the Spark icon by default, regardless of what level if service you have. Anyone have any input/experiences?

The icon will show with any LTE connection.
LTE is part of Sprint Spark.

Basically it's a useless icon they put on the phones I wish they didn't designed to "sell" people in on something. It's meant to have a placebo effect where when you see it you think you are on a better network magically.

That's what I thought. It's pretty distracting. Can't wait to get rid of it.
