Understanding key figure authorizations

I've read some posts in this forum about key figure authorizations saying that they follow the usual "all or nothing" rule. That would mean I have to activate 0TCAKYFNM and then explicitly authorize every single key figure used in a query.

However, the BW365 learning materials list two exceptions to this rule: Hierarchies and Key Figures. For key figures, SAP writes:

"Key figure values are not displayed if the key figure is not authorized. You don't get a blank screen if you don't have access to one or two key figures;

you will still see the key figures you are authorized to see."

Well, I tried it and it doesn't seem to work. I get an authorization error and the log complains about missing authorizations for some of the key figures.

Who's lying?
