Draft and Fillets

I have a question on draft and fillets.  I don't normally apply draft to models, usually leave that up to the toolmakers.  But here's my question, I've applied the draft first, then the fillets second.  When I evaluate draft before the fillets, it looks as I'd expect.  When I evaluate the draft after I apply the fillets, one of the fillets between two drafted faces does not retain the 3 degrees of draft I applied to the faces.  Am I understanding this correctly?  If I am, the fillet needs draft applied to it somehow.  How do you deal with this?  Pictures to explain:


Draft analysis before fillets, all is good:

Draft analysis after fillets, fillet is no good:
