Filebeat not dropping the entire events/log

I don't want to collect logs from all containers, so I want to discard a few container logs.
In the below case, I don't want to capture logs from logstash and elastic.

Actual:
In the logs, I see only the "container" field has been dropped from the JSON body nothing else.

Expected:
Drop the entire JSON message.

filebeat.inputs:
  - type: docker
    combine_partial: true
    containers:
      path: "/usr/share/dockerlogs/data"
      stream: "stdout"
      ids:
        - "*"
    exclude_files: ['\.gz$']
    ignore_older: 10m
    processors:
      drop_event.when:
        or:
        - equals:
            docker.container.name: "s_logstash_1"
        - equals:
            docker.container.name: "s_es_1"

Output:

"container" field is missing.

Hi!

This is quite weird! Could you share more info about the version you are using?

Also do you see anything suspicious in the logs regarding the drop_event processor? The processor is supposed to just drop events when conditions are met. Could you verify that processor does not fail for some reason?
