Activating the Hidden Wire option from the Overlays, disables the In Front option form object properties, Viewport Display rollout; this is useful when doing retopo because In Front option alone obscures the highpoly from underneath; it's good to only see the wire for the retopo. In previous versions this worked like a charm; here is a video showing the issue:

Take an object; try to create any geometry on top, like doing a retopo, then activate In Front option for the wrap geometry; then go to Overlays(up right corner of the viewport) and activate Hidden Wire when you're in Edit Mode for the retopo geometry; it disables the In Front(Xray on older versions of Blender);
