In Sociocracy, is it appropriate to mention if you do/or do not want a role?

We ask groups to avoid that so we can hear who the group thinks is qualified. Otherwise, we lose feedback, both for the qualified person and for the circle that is trying to find a person that could fill the role well. From our experience, it happens quite often that people who originally said that they would not be available ended up accepting, possibly with modifications.
