I don't know if the PMU firmware now somehow support header-less 
bitstreams, but I can tell that it will fail in any case if this bit is set.
So, with recent versions, this bit simply never should be set.

Here is the check that will fail if this bit is set:
https://github.com/Xilinx/embeddedsw/blob/master/lib/sw_services/xilfpga/src/xilfpga.c#L643

Since I can't test the different combinations for old (pre-2018.3) PMU 
firmware, I would suggest leaving the bit set to avoid breaking something.
