SUBST removes anything after match

SUBST macro rewrites string based on regexp matches. However it does not append text after last match

Example:

%SUBST{text="1 2 3 5 4 6 7" pattern="(5) (4)" format="$2 $1"}%

Result: 1 2 3 4 5

Is this expected behaviour? How can I change text in the middle of the string without loosing the end?
