Packaging material consume and movement

Hi all,

I am just starting working with Handling units and packaging materials and I have a question.

I am creating some handling units with automatic packing instructions and I am able to move them from a non HU managed storage location to a HU storage location. I can check that threw tcode mmbe.

My problem is that only the finished good inside the Handling unit is moved and not the packaging materials. Shouldn't the packaging materials be consumed when I create the HU and move it to a HU managed storage location?? I can even create more HUs than the total stock of packaging materials should permit..

The stocks of the packaging materials I use only gets changed when I do the delivery for the HU and post the goods issue.

Thanks in advance

Edit: We dont have WM activated by the way
