Function of identify and a timeline

I have a question about the timeline capability coupled with the identify.  I have a DynamicMapServiceLayer that has several layers, which I connected to a TOC.  When toggling layers on and off, I update the visible layers and the "identify" works correctly on visible layers and not on the layers that are not visible.  However, when I run the timeline slider on a layer that is visible, the "identify" returns a result for all points in that layer whether visible or not. 

So my question is there anything in the timeline that will prevent an "identify" on points that are not yet visible?  Or does the "identify" only function with the visibility of an entire layer, and not with the visibility of points within a layer?
