OnEndOfDay() is not called when using AddUniverse() in backtest mode, is this expected?

When using AddUniverse() in QCAlgorithm, the OnEndOfDay() function is not called in backtesting mode. Is this expected behavior?
It is called though when switching to using AddEquity().

You can just backtest this algo with USE_UNIVERSE=True and False to reproduce this.

Hi Rafal.

Using AddUniverse will not prevent the function OnEndOfDay() from igniting each day.Use self.Log() in the method OnEndOfDay() to verify:

# In OnEndOfDay
self.Log(f'OnEndOfDay() {self.Time}')

I've attached a backtest for your reference. Checkout the documentation on Universes for further information.
