Sharepoint doc library files imported through windows explored are all checked out

I run into this when migrating our file server content into the Sharepoint BI Team Site,  it had to do with two settings (versioning and require checkout) that cause all files I copied into our document library through WebDAV and Windows Explorer to be checked out to my user. This was solved by temporarily turning off these settings while I imported the files again and then turning them back on:
