XF 1.3 Staff hiding online status

One question, how come if some staff try to hid their online status, they are still visible? I can see them and I believe the rest of the staff can too. Is there a way to change this if you understand what I mean.

Any user group with the "Bypass user privacy" permission set to "Allow" will see invisible members.
One more thing, I apologize. Shouldn't it be set up differently for staff? I'm not necessarily talking about "members' in general, but rather more regarding the staff I have on my forums.
Well, as an example, my staff and would be able to see regular members hiding their online status, but I wouldn't be bale to see my fellow administrator when he is on. How is this possible if this controlled in the user group section. It makes sense, but not in this ^ way.

There is nothing different. If you can bypass privacy, you will be able to see the administrator when they are online and invisible as well.
