[slurm-users] Partition not allowing subaccount use

I've setup a partition THING with AllowAccounts=stuff. I then use sacctmgr to create the stuff account and a mystuff account whose parent is stuff. My understanding is that this would make mystuff a subaccount of stuff.
The description for specifying allowaccount in a partition definition in slurm.conf says:
Comma-separated list of accounts which may execute jobs in the partition. The default value is "ALL". This list is also hierarchical, meaning subaccounts are included automatically.
However, when I try to submit a job using --account=mystuff, then it gets rejected and the reason in the slurmctld.log is because "Job's account not permitted to use this partition (THING allows stuff not mystuff)".
Am I not understanding what constitutes a subaccount? When I "sacctmgr show assoc tree", then I see that mystuff is under stuff.
Or am I misreading the documentation that says that subaccounts are included in who is allowed to use the partition?
