OpenStudio Daylighting controls together with Shading controls


I have a model containing both daylight control and shading controls. The shading is modelled as exterior blinds with a setpoint of 450 w/m2 and i'm using OpenStudio for the daylight since Radiance have a problem with the shading device.

I noticed that the shading system have no effect on the lighting control. So my question is: Does the OpenStudio daylight calculations take shading systems into account?

Because it does not do that in my case, seeing as my resulting electricity usage for lighting stays the same in both cases :)

I know the lighting control works because the electricity usage is lower than that of the model without it.
