Comments downloading missing 'auto-formatted' flag?

I tried downloading comments with http://www.livejournal.com/export_comments.bml?get=comment_meta&startid=0 and http://www.livejournal.com/export_comments.bml?get=comment_body&startid=0, but neither of those seem to contain enough information to reconstruct whether or not the comment was auto-formatted or not. This is a big deal for my journal, since I'm the most frequent commenter and I never use auto-formatting.

Is there a way to get the value of this flag? Or will I have to use heuristics to guess? Might it be something like "If the comment contains any newlines, then it wasn't auto-formatted."?
