Milestones, Start Dates and completion


I have a milestone setup to track testing progress for a project we are working on. Within that Milestone I have 3 sub milestones and in each of those I have test plans and test runs assigned. 2 of the Milestones are active and the 3rd has a start date of 11/21/18 (Current date is 11/16). Why would the tests in that milestone that has not started not be factored into the overall progress (% passed, % untested, etc…) of the Parent Milestone? Earlier this week even the forecasted completion date of the parent milestone was before the start date of the sub-Milestone that has not started yet.
