Merge modules get installed even when their feature is not.

I'm using a test msi installer: I have two features: FEATURE_1, FEATURE_2, both have a file linked to them. However, with FEATURE_1, I also have a merge module linked to it. Now I run the install with the following command: msiexec /i Test_Installer.msi ADDLOCAL=FEATURE_2 /qb. The result is FEATURE_2 gets installed as expected, the file from FEATURE_1 does not get installed as expected, but the merge module from FEATURE_1 does get executed. Why is this?
