Exposure Bracketing Question

I have read through the manual but I can't seem to find an answer to this. When I set the shutter option to exposure bracketing in manual mode, the middle exposure value is in the middle, which is 0. The weird thing is, when the mode is set to Av or Tv, the middle exposure value is at .3 exposure value? I can't seem to get the middle exposure to 0. What gives?

Thank you

Do you have your EV bias/compensation set at +0.3 to begin with?
The camera uses this as the 0 point, then works out the bracketed exposures from there.

silly me Thanks Ash, it was indeed set to +.3 to begin with. I'm surprised the exposure preset in Av and Tv didn't carry over to Manual mode. Thank you for the help
