But FWIW, Apache implements different behavior. If you have directory
listings turned on, and you have a directory which contains
an .htaccess file, and that .htaccess file forbids you access to the
directory contents, then the directory doesn't show up in its
parent's directory listing.

Admittedly I wasn't expecting that behavior and it threw me for a
loop when I first observed it. But there it is.
