Shard Allocation _name takes bogus name

I want to send a certain index to a set of nodes.
I see shard allocation filtering seems to be what I need so that different apps (different index) impact set of nodes. I put settings with

"index.routing.allocation.include._name": "bogus_name"


"index.routing.allocation.require._name": "bogus_name"

Although "bogus_name" nodes do not exist, it allocated shards to some other nodes and moved on. Is this expected behavior?

Thank you
