Why does the publisher information occur in field Extra for Journal articles?

I'm using the "Add Item by identifier" feature to add journal articles to my library.

Zotero sources the publisher information as well. However, it gets stuffed in the Extra field.

Example: 10.1093/qje/qjy028 has "Publisher: Oxford University Press".

I do not need it there, I do not want it there. Moreover, the publisher information occurs in the bibtex information under "note". Several styles add it to the bibliography, which I do not want at all.

Now I have to work through all the entries manually to remove the publisher information.

Can Zotero change this behavior, and either
a) do not source the publisher information for journal articles added via DOI, or
b) put the publisher information in a dedicated field for journal articles?
  • 10.1093/qje/qjy028 has "Publisher: Oxford University Press".
    It doesn't for me. That DOI brought me to https://academic.oup.com/qje/article/134/2/647/5218522 and that doesn't list OUP for me anywhere in the captured item.

    But even if it does, if you export with Better BibTeX (which would be my obviously biased advice for anyone working with bibtex), it ends up in publisher instead of note.
