comment Substitute text with sed and keep part of the original text

comment User logged in by sftp does not show up in `w`
Actually scp and sftp are different protocols. From Wikipedia, "Compared to the earlier SCP protocol, which allows only file transfers, the SFTP protocol allows for a range of operations on remote files – it is more like a remote file system protocol"

Ok, it turns out you were right. Even though sftp seems to be interactive, it is considered to be non-interactive by the system and therefore doesn't add it to utmp for some reason, so the answer to my original question is, "Yes, this is standard behavior."
