As this is unique to FPI I don't think any rules have been made to cover
this situation so far. 

Most pilots seem to leave the default code of 1200 on their system - and
this is not a bad idea. At least it shows they are not under any ATC
control - otherwise they would be given a specific squawk. My thought is
that we stick with this until someone decides otherwise.
