GFX 50r and polarizers

So, the sun finally came out in this area and I decided to play around with polarizers on the new body before going to Mexico.

I have the EFV brightness set to Manual, but when rotating the filter to locate the position of maximum polarization the camera is still compensating for the change in light. Rotating the polarizer the view gets darker and then brightens up again. Makes it hard to find the position of maximum polarization.  It's easier to use the index mark on the filter.

It looks like the simple solution is use a shutter button half press to lock the exposure and then adjust the filter.

Do I have a setting improperly selected or is this just how it is with EFV?
