Maven 3 - Time Stamped Artifacts in Repository

I have read that versions setting is no longer executed and is ignored in Maven 3 or later, as explained here: Non-unique Versions. And by design, Maven 3 or later will always produce time stamped SNAPSHOT versions.

When I build artifacts though, I have some artifacts that only produce the base SNAPSHOT version, even if I build it multiple times, there .

After building some artifacts, in my local repository there will be that base artifact-SNAPSHOT file that I built, and a few other time stamped versions of the same artifact. There is the base artifact: artifactID-, and then there are others in the same directory with versions appended to them: e.g. artifact-

I don't want the time stamp files built and put into my repository, as it only eats up disk space. I would like to figure out how to only produce the base version and nothing else.

Other than writing a script to deleted these accumulating time stamped artifacts, Has anyone figure out a way to disable them completely so they are not created in Maven 3 or later?
