View creation option resource "Available"/"Not Available" broken

When creating a new view, there is a option that allows a user to see if the font resource is "Available" or "Not Available". Since the "Font Information" panel has a "Resource" section that shows the files on disk that are associated with the MainType font resource, I thought this option was to check for that, but it seems to do something else, or just doesn't work.

The fonts selected as "Available" seem to have very little in common, although every installed font is selected. Some of the more recently scanned fonts are selected, but there are more recent that are not. All my fonts are in a currently active sync folder.

So, is this option broken, or am I not understanding what it is supposed to do?
