Restrict student access before/after course dates does not seem to work as described

In the Canvas document How do I restrict student access to a course before or after the course dates?, it states by selecting "Restrict students from viewing this course after end date" will not allow students to access the course after the end date, either term end date or course end date if there's an override.
"Restrict students from viewing this course before start date" will not allow students to access the course before the start date, either term start date or course start date if there's an override.

 

After doing some testing, it seems this only works if "Students can only participate in the course between these dates" is also checked, but this is not documented in How do I restrict student access to a course before or after the course dates?

 

Below are results from my testing. I don't believe the behavior is correct, but wanted to check.

Term Start: 4/4/2019, Term End: 9/22/2019
