Why does SOLIDWORKS turn on visibility for ALL the connection points in an assembly after inserting a fitting?

Whenever I am creating a route, upon inserting a fitting SOLIDWORKS for some reason turns visibility on for every single connection point in the assembly, making it difficult to see things. It's annoying that I have to turn the visibility off for these repeatedly while creating routes. Before and after pics to illustrate:

 

First screensnip, I have a conduit run with a "L" fitting. Connection point visibility is off. I will extend the the conduit and add a "tee" fitting.

 

 

After adding the aforementioned "tee" fitting, my screen now looks like this (all connection points from all subassemblies/routes are suddenly visible):

 

 

I do not wish to see these and have to keep turning them off. They just get in the way. Any thoughts? Thanks.
