[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Previous archival resource keys in PDF?

We have this issue where our PDFs of resource records sometimes have a lot of previous archival resource keys showing us as "ID [ark-superseded]" - I included one page, extracted from a PDF, as an example of the problem. That collection actually has two pages of these arks (30 previous ones are listed).

I'm assuming ARKs getting superseded like this has something to do with the OAI-PMH harvesting that our metadata colleagues set up for us, but I'm not sure. I don't understand what we're doing wrong to make SO MANY of them show up in the PDFs, which we use as finding aids for patrons or donors that are less tech savvy.  Is there a way to make it so long lists of previous ARKs do not show up in the PDF exports?  It would be ideal to not have all the superseded ARKs listed, since the people we are printing these things out for don't need them and won't understand what they are.

FWIW, we're using version 3.3.2, and I haven't tried to see if this is happening in the sandbox because I'm not actually sure what is causing the ARKs to get superseded in the first place.
