Disable Port Forwarding HPE 5120 EI Switch Series

I'm using the HPE 5120 EI Switch Series, I need to disable port forwarding because it flagged on a nessus vulnerability scan.  Keep in mind im not using my switch as a router.  Anyone have any ideas?

This is what the results say but please visit link for more details: https://www.tenable.com/plugins/nessus/50686

"The remote host has IP forwarding enabled. An attacker can exploit
this to route packets through the host and potentially bypass some
firewalls / routers / NAC filtering.

Unless the remote host is a router, it is recommended that you disable
IP forwarding.

Is IP Routing disabled?
