This works with many other feature types as well, including chamfer.

It should work regardless of how many times visibility is toggled.

This is by design. When a feature is shown, the whole state of the solid after applying the feature is shown. Hide/Show is not going to switch features on and off in the middle of modeling history.

What can be done, is when you hide Fillet, a previous feature is made visible automatically. I would regard this as a valid feature request, but not a bug.
