Suppressing folder containing Smart Fasteners OR Smart Fastener feature does not suppress Fasteners.

So basically what I am trying to do is group a bunch of smart fastener features together in a folder to make them easy to suppress/unsuppress using a design table.
The problem I am having is that when I use $STATE@Folder and set it to "U", it suppresses the Smart Fastener feature inside the folder, but not the fasteners themselves.
Is this the normal behavior?
Is there a better way to go about this that I am unaware of?





See attached picture for an idea of what I'm talking about.

Both the folders "Mandrel Drive Fastners" and "Chain Track Fastners" are suppressed via design table.

You'll notice that even the "Chain Track Fastners" shows as being resolved, even though it is suppressed and all it's features are suppressed.
