Sometimes, when editing, I will create a rule-based styleset to hide some features. I do this because you can't edit shapefiles when they are filtered. It is mostly fine, but the selection tool will select features even from disabled (unchecked) "styles" in the Layers panel. I'm not sure if it's a bug or feature, but it doesn't seem logical to allow selection of items you can't see.

Fix #12088 - selection tool - do not consider invisible features

This avoids dangerous situations where the user inadvertently selects features
that are not rendered and does further actions (like to delete them)
