    Description

      I'm not quite sure if this is intended or not, but if you use /setblock to replace a piston arm with something else, the piston would break, like if you would've broken the arm normally

      This would make sense, so you wouldn't have a headless piston, but I don't see why the block would drop, instead of just disappearing.

      What I expected to happen was:

      • When the piston arm gets deleted, the piston gets deleted with it

      What actually happened was:

      • When the piston arm gets deleted, the piston breaks, making the piston drop

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Recreate the setup used in the video
      2. Type setblock ~ ~2 ~ air into the command block
      3. Press the button

      Notice that the piston dropped, instead of just disappearing
