Referral Exclusion List not Working?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I've set up referral exclusion list for third-party payment processors my website uses to avoid them being treated as "referrals" (after the user makes a payment via one of the payment processors, they're directed back to my website).


The referrals aren't excluded in the way I expected and the traffic still registers as "referral" with the "source" displayed as (direct).


From what I know the traffic should get converted to direct/none. But, as you can't see, it doesn't. 


Does anybody has any clue what's going on here
