In your case, with display quantize set to 1/8 and inserting 32nd notes, the note heads are drawn where the actual notes are. But the grouping, beaming, ties etc all obey the display quantization, so even though you are entering 32nd notes, they get beamed as 8th notes, which looks weird.

It's not clear what should happen in this case. The display quantize needs to affect display only, not editing. If you have the grid set to 1/32 and insert a note at 1/32 into the measure, the note should get inserted there. Should it then get display-quantized to be directly on top of the previous note (and therefore invisible, if it's the same pitch)?
Input should follow view in my opinion. Otherwise people will get bad surprises. So I would change the view quantize options to be view and input quantize.

EDIT: Still get a weird behaviour if I set the grid to 1/8 notes.
