[R] symbols function

I do not get why the symbols function produces warnings when axes=F is 
added. The following example illustrate this

 > symbols(0,10, inches=T, circles=1, axes=F, xlab="", ylab="")
Warning message:
parameter "axes" could not be set in high-level plot() function

I augmented symbols and added the axes=F argument to the plot function 
inside the original symbols function. It works as expected, no warning 
message. I am just lost as to why the extra arguments in symbols (...) 
are not behaving as expected.
