XF 1.4 Private Node permissions

I have set a node to private, and set all permissions to yes for my admin group. All other groups are not set (ie all set to inherit)

If I analyze permissions for a member who is registered group (but not admin) I can see that (correctly) they cannot view the node.

However all the other permissions show as yes, e.g. view threads.

I assume this is safe, in that if they can't view the node, then they can't view the threads within in spite of the permissions saying yes.

It seems a bit misleading, but is this correct?

If they can't view the node then they can't view the threads.

However, if those permissions are set to allow then it must be set somewhere, presumably in the parent node?
