Materials applied to sub assembles at component level don't show in display manager

I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the fact that when looking at the list of applied appearances in the display manager, any materials which have been applied to sub assembles (at component level for that particular sub assembly) don't show . As in, the materials display correctly in the graphics window, but aren't listed along with all the other appearances.

This makes it tricky when trying to work our which is the 'dominant' material... or why a material looks as it does, when the material you're looking at on screen isn't shown in the list.


Also, not sure if this is a recognised bug, but there is a tendency for rogue 'grey' materials to be applied at component level, both on the main assembly and also sub assemblies, which need to be deleted to allow the proper materials to show through.


Does any of this make sense to anyone?
