In the print layout, a legend has the option to display a "feature count" for a layer. This option displays the total number of features in that layer, as expected. However, the option, "filter legend by map content," has no effect on the "feature count." I would expect the "filter legend by map content" option to reduce the "feature count" to count only the features within the map extent.
For example, if a layer has 10 features, but only 5 are visible on the map. I would expect "feature count" to display  when "filter legend by map content" is off. I would expect the "feature count" to change to  when "filter legend by map content" is turned on.
I'm posting this as a bug report because I think the feature doesn't work as would be reasonably expected. If others disagree, please make this a feature request instead. It would be very useful to automatically display a count of features visible on the map.
