[openssl-users] problem with -aes256 and -outform der in cmmand

If I use format=pem in the following:
openssl genpkey -outform $format -aes256 -algorithm ec -pkeyopt
-pkeyopt ec_param_enc:named_curve -out private/ca.key.$format
the private key is password protected.
But if I use format=der
I do not get prompted for the password.
The pem file is 379 bytes and the der is 121, but that is not a valid
comparison as der is not encrypted...
Is this a bug? Or a feature?
