FS#1039 - Desite "noauto" specified in /etc/fstab all devices get mounted


I have tried all combinations, but despite “noauto” specified in /etc/fstab all devices get mounted at boot.

Who can help me, not to mount a device during boot?

That is because I don't want some devices mounted, as in man page for mount:

The command

               mount -a [-t type] [-O optlist]

        (usually given in a bootscript) causes all  filesystems  mentioned  in  fstab  (of  the
        proper type and/or having or not having the proper options) to be mounted as indicated,
        except for those whose line contains the noauto keyword.  Adding  the  -F  option  will
        make mount fork, so that the filesystems are mounted simultaneously.

I have above line in /etc/fstab and it gets mounted on each boot, even though there is "noauto" in the line
