 I have following output of DESeq2 on the following functions. It seems that if changes the fitType for dispersion only when I compute variance stabilized values. Why doesn't it change the dispersion fitType when the function DESeq is called?

dds.1 = DESeqDataSetFromMatrix(countData=signal, colData=Design, design=~condition)
> dds <- DESeq(dds.1)
estimating size factors
estimating dispersions
gene-wise dispersion estimates
mean-dispersion relationship
final dispersion estimates
fitting model and testing
> vst = varianceStabilizingTransformation(dds)
-- note: fitType='parametric', but the dispersion trend was not well captured by the
   function: y = a/x + b, and a local regression fit was automatically substituted.
   specify fitType='local' or 'mean' to avoid this message next time.

Briefly, because the estimation of dispersion using the "blind" design formula gives different estimates than using the formula in design(dds). See the manual page for the VST, the "blind" argument.
