Default format of axis offset label

When matplotlib displays an auto-scaled graph with data that has a very small range around a larger offset, it shows that Y-axis offset at the top left-corner of the plot in exponential notation. In Linux by default that number is shown with 3 significant digits to the right of the decimal point, and in Windows by default that number is shown with 10 digits. Is this intentional? Can I change that? I will attempt to link to example plots showing what I’m talking about:

…maybe the answer is lurking somewhere in here, although if so, it doesn’t look as easy as I was hoping it would be:

To turn this off for a specific axis


To turn this off for all axis use

import matplotlib as mpl
mpl.rcParams['axes.formatter.useoffset'] = False
