ArcMap - invisible group layer behaviour selection should be the same as an invisible layer selection

    Promote this if you agree an invisible group layer should be the same as an invisible layer selection.
    Demote this if you would like it to be clear in Selection Options that "Clear the selection for invisible layers…" means layers.  
    This only occurs if the layers are in groups and graphically selecting features.

    When selecting a feature in a Map view graphically in layer A then toggle its Group visibility off, then select another feature in another layer B in a different group the previous feature remains selected, not creating a New Selection.

    And yet when you repeat the selection a feature in a Map view graphically in layer A then toggle its Layer visibility off, then select another feature in another layer B in a different group the previous layer A feature is this time unselected.

    The default Selection Options>Clear the selection for invisible layers when a new selection is made is checked.  The question would be, "should an invisible group layer also behave the same as an invisible group"?
     
    This initially would seem to be inconsistent thus the community can help determine a selection behaviour.
