When importing a MusicXML file, the beams are replaced using MuseScore's automatic beaming.
Is there a way to prevent automatic beaming when importing?

beams.musicxml should display as:

But instead displays as:

Comments

Note that the example file you provide does not specify

supports element="beam" type="yes"

so it might be argued that beams might then be set to "auto".

However, currently MuseScore would produce the same result even with that "supports" setting.
Moreover, it seems that beams should not be set to "auto" on import as soon as a single "beam" element is found in a document.
