Question about thermostat wiring on new boiler

Options
I’m installing a new Buderus boiler for radiant floor heat and was about to hook up the red thermostat wire to “R” and white wire to “W” but noticed that there is a factory installed jumper between both contacts. Do I just leave this jumper in place and proceed with the wiring connections? Thanks!

    That jumper will make the thermostat irrelevant if that is where you are supposed to connect it. What do the directions say?

    There is nothing in the directions about connecting the thermostat wires. All it says is “see wiring diagram.” There’s a picture of the jumper in place in one of the manual diagrams which confused me more.

    The triangle with the 2 is the thermostat wires, per the instruction diagram
