[ocaml-platform] opam show problem

opam show documentation says:

   The information block consists of the name of the package, the
       installed version if this package is installed in the currently
       selected compiler,.."

I have a switch BUILDSYSTEM that does not contain lwt.
1) it's not under ~/.opam/BUILDSYSTEM/lib
2) linking with the package lwt in this switch does not work.
Still "opam show lwt" does give me a version as in it's output:
opam show lwt
             package: lwt
             version: 2.6.0
ocaml show where lwt does show this:
opam show --where lwt
I do have it installed in other switches.

Are my expectations wrong, or is this a bug?
Thanks in advance,
