Group policy management on Windows 7 in 2003 domain, some settings not appearing properly in GPMC

I have a 2003 domain. I am doing some group policy management. I have the latest GPOAccelerator installed on my dc and my workstation. DC is 2003 R2. Workstation in Windows 7 Enterprise. I am looking at the WS03 EC Member Server Baseline Policy. I am interested specifically in the "Devices: Unsigned driver installation behavior" setting. I don't really care about the setting itself, just how it is being displayed in the GPMC.

On the DC, it shows up in "Policies - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies/Security Options - Devices", which is correct. See gpo1.png image below.

On my Win7 workstation, it shows up in "Policies - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies/Security Options - Registry Values - MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Driver Signing\Policy", which is wrong. See gpo2.png image below.

Is this possibly an ADM / ADMX template problem?
