Are you sure the control gets physically placed outside the group? Are you
using any scripts to manipulate object layers?
Doing a quick test here with a single object in a group, I don't see your
result (v4.6.4). The rect of a group does indeed "collapse" to encompass
only its visible contents, but the hidden object/s should continue to remain
part of the group. If you're seeing something else, it would be good know
what the circumstances are.
