Perhaps you should've read the configuration-manual-page more carefully. ;)
Besides, WAL-archiving is turned off by default, so if you see them 
being archived you actually enabled it earlier

The "archive_command" is empty by default: "If this is an empty string 
(the default), WAL archiving is disabled."

Best regards,
