I have a new custom post type called "product".
I attached "category" to that cpt.

$args = array(
                'public'        => true,
                'has_archive'   => 'true',
                'menu_position' => 6,
                'supports'      => array( 'title', 'thumbnail', 'editor' ),
                'taxonomies'    => array( 'category', 'post_tag ' ),
                'label'         => 'Products',
        register_post_type( 'product', $args );

When I use the filter category ( ...
It automatically switches to the post type "post" instead "product". (

And maybe add a field s though I just clicked the filter button but did not click the search submit (empty search field).

Just to note, that using a very basic CPT with no extra filters it appears to work as intended for me when filtering from the CPT list view.
