Plain text is displayed in backoffice instead of encrypted value after encrypted="true"


I have to encrypt a field value which is of type String. Below is the declaration:

 <attribute qualifier="value" type="java.lang.String">
   <persistence type="property">
   <modifiers encrypted="true"/>

When I see this field in Backoffice, it displays as plain text but if I search this using the flexible search then I see the encrypted value. I want this encrypted value to be displayed in Backoffice but not the plain text. I see that in OOTB for some attributes with encrypted="true" , the encrypted value is displayed in Backoffice. Am I missing anything? Thanks in advance.
