[wix-users] Wix Bootstrapper Not Uninstalling Self Upgraded MSI

I am using Wix bootstrapper (Wix Version 3.10) which installs an MSI package (Wix Version 3.9). The issue I'm having is when the MSI is upgraded on its own, then the bootstrapper is uninstalled - the upgraded MSI is left behind. I have read (from unofficial sources) that this the intended behavior. Can someone confirm this and is there a workaround? I would like to be able to update the MSI independently and still have it get uninstalled when the boostrapper is uninstalled.
