Unmapped nested types in queries

The documentation at
says that the following setting
, when set to true, will allow a query not to fail if a field referenced in
the search query is not mapped.

It doesn't work on nested types though (and I confirmed that by browsing
the source code).
For a path like grandParent.parent.child, if only grandParent is mapped,
then the query/filter will fail if the search query/filter references the
'child' field.

Just wondering is this is the intended behavior.
