Freestyle is like an own render engine that renders after the base render is done. It uses it's own settings and therefore isn't affected by the settings of the base render engine (in this case Cycles). Not sure if this would be good to have but even if so, we'd consider this as a todo, not as a bug.

If you want to completely hide the object for rendering, you can deselect the render-visibility option from the Outliner.

Anyway, thanks for the report @Computer Guy (Terrance8d), but everything works as expected here :)
