Good catch! Haven't been utilizing the passive mode yet, but this sure needs some clear statement from MS.
This article describes it as ForceDefenderPassiveMode:

However, i don't get my Defender to passive mode with the entry (most likely because of Tamper Protection).

It looks like this has been resolved and all four links above now show that "ForceDefenderPassiveMode" puts Defender AV in passive mode.
