Easy check, when you turn down the folder fader, the meters on the children don't change (neither do the levels any tracks they are sending to). It's one of the major reasons people wanted VCAs which fixes the issue but comes with it's own caveats such as a similar issue if you then place a non-linear plugin on the buss or folder.

It can also be addressed by "flowing" the child sends through extra channels on the parent (buss or folder), which also fixes the issue but it has a caveat as well but fewer IIRC of other methods.
Music is what feelings sound like.
