Isn't that what the "AUTOFILL" command is for?

        When SD identifies area codes from the callsign, or from
        previous QSOs, it auto-fills the data in the exchange field.
        This may be a nuisance in S&P mode, as you then have to
        use F5 to repeat your own call. The AUTOFILL command
        toggles this feature On and Off – it has no effect when
        you’re not in S&P mode.

I set AUTOFILL to "OFF" in the recent ARRL CW DX Contest, and found it 
solved that problem.
