Section Style background color not editable for geometry within blocks

Trying to show section styles using the technical view. All closed polysurfaces work as you would expect except when they are in a block. This be fixed?

To replicate this condition:

  1. create cylinder, or any closed polysrf
  2. intersect with a clipping plane:
  3. Change into technical:
  4. Make a block with cylinder
  5. The result is that the resulting section shows the layer color and not following the viewport setting:

    the correct and expected behavior should be identical to the image in step 3 above.
