Photoshop 2020: Action selecting inner folder mask doesn't open outer folder

This one is also in 2017 and has a workaround, but might be a bug?

To have a closed group show opened at the end of an action, one can select a layer in it.

However, selecting the mask on an inner group records and invisibly executes, but does not open the folder...

Workaround: select a layer inside first.

I think this one is as designed. Actions can't, don't control the view of the layers panel.

Ok, no biggie. It does (luckily) work when selecting another layer though.
