UserUpdateRequest VerifyEmail doesn't seem to work

When updating a user’s email address, if I set VerifyEmail to false, I would not expect the user to have to verify their email address. However, in the portal I can see the email address is set to Pending. Is this the correct behaviour? What do I need to do so that after changing the user’s email address they can log in with the new email address without email verification?

            var updateUserRequest = new UserUpdateRequest
                Email = newEmail,
                VerifyEmail = false
