If I enable, for example, buddypress on a multisite install by going to Network -> plugins -> network activate, why does it not appear in My Sites -> Name of Site-> Dashboard -> plugins as activated?

I've observed that sometimes activating a plugin network wide will make it available to be enabled / disabled in a network site but not for all plugins. What causes this behaviour?


Plugin that are already activated per network are hidden from the single site’s plugin list. Plugins with a header Network: true are always hidden, even when they are not activated.
