Are you referring to www_fingerprinting_hmap.nasl or something else?
Both are experimental but, yes, it does seem inconsistent in that for
www_fingerprinting_hmap.nasl you can also get a report by enabling
thorough testing while that won't work for smtpscan.nasl.

Michel Arboi is the author for both scripts. Perhaps he'll respond or
you can ask him directly.
