That would increase the hitch weight.
This may be the answer to our question of why more hitch weight.
I'm not sure why the hitch weight increase either, and I was curious as well, but what you've stated would make sense. We placed our order on March 29th last year and thought we were ordering a 2011 at the time, but quickly learned from our dealer that ours would actually be a 2012 model. I guess we got one of the early 2012 models.
When we scaled ours at the CAT scales, the TT weighed 7690 lbs and the hitch weight was 750 lbs with WDH applied, and just over 1000 lbs. without WDH.
