Work Plan Cancellation - Driven by Built-In Workflow Event?

I am trying to detemine if the HP-PPM Built-In Workflow Event named "wf_close_failure" is driving the status of the project Work Plan to change to "Cancelled"?  If so, is it possible to modify / disable this functionality?

Check the Demand Management Configuration Guide for 9.1, which I'll attach:

 

Page 264

wf_close_failure. Sets the request or package line as closed with an end status of Failed.

 

and

 

Page 290

Closing Requests as Failed You can create an execution step that closes a request and marks the request as Failed. Each request workflow must resolve with a closed request. The execution workflow step source Close (Immediate failure) performs this task. Use this step source unless it does not meet the required specifications, such as validation or processing type. To create the execution step source, make a copy of execution workflow step source Close (Immediate failure) and changes the field values as defined in Table 7-3.

 

So it is closed / failed but I don't see any reference to a cancelled status.
