Have I completely misunderstood how Lock Screen Notifications work?

I've been using a Note 9 with the 12.0.8 Global ROM for a couple of months and one thing keeps annoying me.

Maybe I don't understand the meaning of "Lock Screen Notifications" ... but they aren't working as I would expect.

I thought that, if I enabled "Lock Screen Notifications" in an app, the notification would be visible whenever I activated the display. That is, when I hit the power button and saw the clock, wallpaper and "Swipe up to unlock" ... I'd also see any notifications from my email, SMS, bank app, Facebook Messenger etc. I don't see any of that.

Can somebody please tell me if I'm on the wrong track?
