Bug? Opinions on Footprint/Text Fields Activation Wanted

In some of my Footprint designs there are Reference or Value fields aligned with the center anchor point of the Footprint. In PcbNew the current action is to activate and highlight the hidden field, instead of activating the entire Footprint.

The anchor determines both the location of the primary part and any other text fields the Footprint has that is assigned to be aligned with the anchor. It does not make logical sense for KiCad to activate a non-displayed field when the anchor point of the Footprint is selected; the priority should be the entire Footprint.

Is this issue a bug?
