Not focused entity is displayed in focus color

Entity of 'definition.xxx is Query' is displayed in 'Focus Color' in graphic screen when editing feature, even if it is not focused and not displayed in feature dialog.

For example, feature 'MyBox' makes a box solid by

   OneOrTwoPoint: by selecting one or two points.
   SIZE  : by specifying size(length values).

annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "MyBox" }
export const myBox = defineFeature(function(context is Context, id is Id, definition is map)
        annotation { "Name" : "Box Type" }
        definition.myBoxType is MyBoxType;

        if (definition.myBoxType == MyBoxType.Size) {
            annotation { "Name" : "X" } isLength(definition.x, LENGTH_BOUNDS);
            annotation { "Name" : "Y" } isLength(definition.y, LENGTH_BOUNDS);
            annotation { "Name" : "Z" } isLength(definition.z, LENGTH_BOUNDS);
        } else {
            annotation { "Name" : "Point(s)", "Filter" : EntityType.VERTEX, "MaxNumberOfPicks" : 2 }
            definition.twopoints is Query;

        var points=makeArray(2,vector(0,0,0)*meter);
        if (definition.myBoxType==MyBoxType.Size) {
        } else {
            var q=evaluateQuery(context, definition.twopoints);
            for(var i=0;i<size(q);i+=1) points[i]=evVertexPoint(context, {"vertex" : q[i]});
        fCuboid(context, id+"myBox",{"corner1":points[0],"corner2":points[1]});

export enum MyBoxType {

After creating 'myBox' by OneOrTwoPoint,  I edit to change to SIZE.
In graphic screen, the two points remain to be displayed in focus color though 'definition.twopoints' is not focused and not displayed in dialog and cannot be changed by clicking other entities when SIZE is selected.
