g_form.isVisible does not work  for a field on a hidden section

Steps to Reproduce


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new section on the incident form "Testing". Add any field which is currently not in the form to the new section. ( Here added "Due Date"
2. Create a onLoad client script to hide a section on load as below :
Name : Hide section incident form
Table : Incident
Type : onLoad
Script :
function onLoad() {
//Type appropriate comment here, and begin script below
g_form.setSectionDisplay('testing', false);
3. Created a automated test "Testing field Visibility" with below steps :
Step 1 : Open an incident form
Step 2 : Field State validation : Check field "Due date" is not visible.
Expected : The test should pass as the field "Due date" is in a section which is hidden, so technically the field is not visible.
Actual : The test fails saying that the field "Due date" is visible.
