Batch Create defaulting public = 0 in wp_blogs ???

Troubleshooting an aggregation issue (some current global posts were showing up and others weren't) I discovered that every blog I created in the normal admin interface had their public field in wp_blogs set to 1 while every blog created through the Batch Create plugin was set to 0 (which was a majority of the the blogs in total)

I know Batch Create just calls the function wpmu_create_blog, but I'm wondering how the difference is there. It's even more bizarre because the table wp_blogs is set to default 1 for the public field.

Is it possible to get Batch Create to make sure this is the case? Any insight?

Thanks!
