When I run Microsoft Office 2010 under Wine 3.0 (in Ubuntu Bionic), every .doc or .docx file written by Word gets executable permission. It does not matter if the file existed before or nor.

My question is how to stop it? I want the Office to save files without executable permission.

EDIT: If I save the file as .rtf or .txt, it does not have the executable permission.
