It wouldn't normally do that, until the battery is almost drained.
Taken from apcupsd.conf:
# If during a power failure, the remaining battery percentage
# (as reported by the UPS) is below or equal to BATTERYLEVEL,
# apcupsd will initiate a system shutdown.
# If during a power failure, the remaining runtime in minutes
# (as calculated internally by the UPS) is below or equal to MINUTES,
# apcupsd, will initiate a system shutdown.
Basically, systems shouldn't shutdown with a '2 second blip' unless
your battery is dead.

apccontrol isn't flagged as a config file in the rpm

The script says
# WARNING: the apccontrol file will be overwritten every time you update your
# apcupsd, doing `make install'. Your own customized scripts will _not_ be
# overwritten. If you wish to make changes to this file (discouraged), you
# should change apccontrol.sh.in and then rerun the configure process.
If you can't change apcupsd.conf config to meet your needs then _don't_
change apccontrol; add a custom script that does an "exit 99" to prevent
the shutdown from running.
