GNOME Privacy settings not working?

In the GNOME Settings app, under the Privacy sidebar tab, there are menus for Location, Camera and Microphone access. While enabling/disabling them works (I can f.e. disable microphone access and no application will be able to access my microphone), the list of applications which have requested location/mic/camera access stays empty, and no application has ever asked me if I may grant it these permissions before accessing them (I have a microphone indicator GNOME extension, so I can tell when an application is accessing my mic, but these settings hint at a more robust permission model). I can't find any information about these permission requests in GNOME online either.
Is this simply a stub/missing feature that might make its way into GNOME soon or am I missing some package/configuration to make it work properly? I really like the idea.
Thanks ^^

Re: GNOME Privacy settings not working?

Update: Apparently the permission list only works for them bloated Flatpaks >:(
Let's hope they'll figure out a way to get a reasonable permission model to natively installed applications!
