Accessing SMB shares from Ubuntu 18.04, doesn't show all shares in GUI?

From Ubuntu 18.04's GUI, if I open the "Files" app, go to "Other Locations", I see my FreeNAS. If I double click it, it then lists *some* of my FreeNAS shares. Specifically, it lists those where I didn't use 'sharesec' to limit share visibility to certain users/groups. Note that it has not asked me to authenticate yet, so I guess that makes sense. *But* even after I authenticate, and let it remember my password, then go back to Other Locations>FreeNAS, it still doesn't show the other shares. In fact I can't find any way to see the other shares. :(

Is this just how Ubuntu works?

No. If anyone else has Ubuntu 18.04 and could confirm the behaviour, that'd be appreciated.

works the same wy for me on ubuntu mate 18.04, I think it's just how the files browser works.
