Short description of error
In the outliner when you click the "Hide in Viewport" icon of a collection, the collection itself and its children collections are grayed out but its children objects are not.
Doesn't make sense to me, if a parent gets grayed out (not visible) so should be all his children.
The icons are correctly grayed out but not the left part.
"Disable in Viewports" option works as expected.
This is happening in older versions too, at least in 2.82 is the same.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Add a new collection to "Collection"
  2. Click the "Hide in Viewport" icon of "Collection"

Just to compare to other use cases I add this video, no need to reproduce the steps in the video

It's strange but I think this has not being reported before. I searched and found nothing.
It's a minor bug but would make user experience better if it's fixed. I think I have a fix for it, if is considered a bug.
