"Created by" value on record is different from "Created by" in the history

Knowledge Article Number 000232251
Description When "Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation" is enabled and the users insert data in SF using an API tool, the "Created By" field can be set to a certain user, but, in the history table of the record, the "Created By" value will be set to the user who inserted the data into the system. 
Resolution Even though the permission allows to set the "Created By" field upon insert, this applies for the record, but not for the related history table, this is working as designed.
