Yes, I also noticed this, but didn't do further tests since I wanted to have ffmpeg 
enable them anyway, without needing to go through QT Pro.

On similar files (Prores/8 mono audio tracks) produced with Final Cut capture, QT Pro 
lets me enable all tracks.

Maybe this "enabled" flag is really not important and the important thing is how to 
label/assign the tracks so that people further down the chain know which track is which.
