Photoshop: Inconsistent layer filter in Photoshop CS6

Inconsistent layer filter in CS6?

There seems to be some inconsistency when using the layer panel filter with hidden layers or layer attributes.

Currently:
If I have some pixel based layers, some with a drop shadow fx...

If a layer is hidden (eye off) and I filter for 'kind = pixel layers', the layer shows in the results. (This is what I would prefer.)

If the layer is visible (eye on), but the effects eye is off and I filter for 'attribute = layer effects', the layer shows in the results. (This is what I would prefer.)

However...
If the layer is visible (eye on), the effects eye is on, but the individual effect eye (drop shadow in this case) is off, and I filter for 'effect = drop shadow', the layer does not show in the results. I think it should.

In summary:
I think that the filter system should show all layers and/or attributes in the filter results whether they are visible or not.
