I got it after Bastien explained it.

I am just not sure if right settings should be like this:

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (electric-indent-mode 0)))
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (setq org-adapt-indentation 'heading-data)))

I understand from debate that changed was brought to make it
consistent with Emacs and users have already got habits. IMHO change
was made rather for the sake of computer program as quite number of
people like it different.
