RRC Module added artifacts links/tags context specific?

The online help says:-

After adding or creating artifacts in modules, you can work with the artifacts in the module or on the Artifacts page. When you work with an artifact outside a module, you are working with the base artifact. Any changes to the artifact name, content, and attributes are reflected in all contexts; that is, in the base artifact and in all modules that include the artifact.

When you create links, tags, and comments for artifacts in the context of a module, those contextual elements are only applicable and can be viewed only in the module in which they are created. When you create links, tags, and comments on base artifacts, they apply to the artifact in all contexts in the project; however, they are not visible by default in modules. You can override the default display in a module to show links, tags, and comments for the base artifact, in addition to any links, tags, and comments that are created in the module.

Is this correct?

In practice I am finding that comments added to an artifact inside a module are context specific to the artifact's representation in the module but I find that links and tags added to the module representation of the artifact also show up on the base artifact's links and tags

It works as expected in my RRC 4.0.5 environment, same as mentioned in the document.
Are you sure you were working on the module artifacts? If you are working on one of them, you will see a module overview just above the "Overview" section (of its own). Another difference is the path - for a module artifact, the last part of the path is a module, while for a base artifact, a folder. You will get to the base artifact when you use the quick search function (type in the artifact number). If you check the shortcut of the artifacts, you will see that they are different for the module artifact and the base artifact, even they appear to be the same artifact (e.g. with the same artifact number).
