Why do drum rack sends still output to the standard sends even if the master fader is down or muted?

If I configure the drum rack to use the send to the standard returns. The master fader does not affect the level that the individual drums send to the effect.

So when I mute or lower the volume of the drum rack i still hear the reverb.

Is there a specific reason why it was implemented this way? 

Grouped tracks do not share this same problem. The master fader /mute on a group controls the send amount on the individual tracks.

I'm a little confused as to why these two would behave differently.

    Did you try changing the pre or post settings on the master channel?
