Scan Window question....

Was going over the scan window documentation and usage, and found that only the scan times are enforced when scan windows are used.

for example if there is a monthly scan scheduled using a window on the first Sunday of every month from 12pm to 1pm.  If the scan doesn't finish, it is paused by the system and will pick up on Monday  and run from 12pm to 1pm.

This causes us issues as these scans are now running during production hours.  KB68760 documents this functionality and mentions that there is a registry tweak that can

"... allows the behavior to switch back to pre 6.7 functionality, where Scan Start Days behaves like Scan Days." 

Can someone explain what this pre 6.7 functionality was and how this scenario would have played out? 

Would the scan end and not complete? or would it wait until the next Sunday at 12 to pick up?  or would it wait until the first Sunday of the next month to finish?

Any insight on this is greatly appreciated.
