Zones in 2.4

Hello all. I am having trouble understanding how the zones work in COMODO. If I set up a zone for my local network and make an application rule that says an app destination is my local zone, I still get popups asking for permission for that app even though it is trying to access a host in the local zone. It wants to make a new rule that allows any destination. This seems to defeat the purpose of zones altogether. Any wisdom to be shared?
