mdadm Centos 5 automatic resync

This made me nervous but it's clearly a cronjob based on the messages log that happens every Sunday at about 4:22.

I actually can't find any evidence of it in cron.d cron.daily but it is there somewhere obviously.

What I don't get is why doesn't this cronjob do a datacheck like Ubuntu's cronscript does?  When you unnecessarily rebuild the array you lose your redundancy during that point which makes your data extremely vulnerable.

*Update I did a grep of "mdadm" in etc but this wouldnt' have come up.

I found the following script is responsible for this "/etc/cron.weekly/99-raid-check".  It gets its config from /etc/sysconfig/raidcheck
