Processes that are supposed to be protected by traps, aren't

Hello Community,


In the traps default protection, svchost is included in exploit protection, however there are a bunch of svchost processes that startup and are unprotected.  I notice this wit ha couple of other built in windows processes as well.  Can anyone explain why this is the case?
