Radio controlled flash not working if Silent Shooting is ON

New to Sony a7rii. I prefer to shoot without shutter noise if possible. For close-up macro work, I sometimes use a hand-held, fill flash controlled by a radio controller attached to the flash shoe. It will not work if Silent Shooting is ON. Works fine is Silent Shooting is OFF. Is this a bug or feature? Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance...
