Question about blockades

Does a blockade expire when peace is declared? It would makes sense that it would, and yet it is not clear from the help page.

Here's the information from the Help page:

Blockades - Blockades reduce the tax collection income of a defending nation randomly between 1-5% for each successful blockade placed against it. In order to place a blockade a navy must have 5 or more blockade capable vessels. (see vessel abilities chart below) A defending nation must have zero Break-Blockade capable ships in order for an attacker to create a blockade against it. Only one blockade may be placed against a nation per day. The penalties from multiple consecutive blockades stack up to a possible 100% reduction of a nation's tax collection. During a blockade if the attacking navy has previously been blockaded then the attacking navy will attempt to capture enemy economic supplies thereby reducing their own pre-existing blockade penalty. Aside from performing these counter blockade operations the only other way to reset the blockade penalty is by collecting taxes. Placing a Blockade against an enemy nation consumes one navy action slot.

So it sounds like the blockade only ends if

1) it is broken by the blockaded nation, done through some kind of counter attack (I think with your own "Blockade" move, but I'm not certain), or

2) taxes are collected by the blockaded nation

It makes no mention of war expiration or peace declaration...is that an intentional omission, or an oversight?

The admin didn't want people just not collecting for a couple of days and waiting for it to expire, so he made it so you have to collect to get rid of the penalty.
