CIS7 scan engine properly excluding things?

What i’m asking is if the scan engine now actually and totally ignores the excluded files or does it still scans the files but disregards any kind of detection results on them? CIS6 and older used to do this and it’s an idiotic way to waste resources. So, has this been fixed in CIS7 ?

I’m asking because i have a feeling CIS is still grinding my SSD cache instead of just ignoring it entirely and not waste drive and CPU cycles on it.

I’ve just tested on a malware folder placed on exlusion list, nothing got scanned.
