Issue when creating a firewall rule

When I was trying to create a new firewall rule through the api, I used the pos parameter but it didn't have any effect on the position.
pvesh create /nodes/{node}/qemu/{vmid}/firewall/rules --action "DROP" --type "in" --comment "create rule at some position" --pos 2
Even though I had more that 3 rules, it wouldn't set it to position 2.
