Limited sample size though.
A domestic transfer greater than 4 hours is automatically a stopover unless that's the next available flight (and, even then, United's pricing engine seems to be pricing it as a stopover), so that behavior makes sense.

IME, it also allows you to SDC segments individually when you're doing an overnight transfer, even on an international itinerary where that doesn't create a stopover.
