Power inline auto max returning after reload

Dear/Dearest Support Community

I have a Cisco Catalyst WS-6509 switch with the following problem:

Each time the switch reloads, it adds this in the config to all my POE interfaces:

interface FastEthernet9/1
 no ip address
 switchport access vlan xx
 switchport mode access
 power inline auto max 7000


After a reload I always have to perform a no power inline command, to remove the 7000 milli-watts limit.
Even tough I run the copy run start after this, each time it reloads, it shows up again.

Very annoying when you have POE devices connected which need more than 7000 milli-watts.

Any suggestions?
