Sort by "Filename" doesn't for Movies

For movies, it appears to sort instead by the parent folder’s name.

For TV, it does appear to sort by filename.

Is this by design?

I’m finding this problematic. We are only allowed one global setting that covers both Movies and TV, but the same setting does opposite things.

(If you use movie folder names as a surrogate “sort by” tag, this feature is desired. But since TV shows won’t scape correctly if you get rid of leading articles from the filenames, sorting by the actual filenames groups all shows beginning with "The " together, instead of where they ought to be based on the first letter in the first significant word.)
