Why isn't bouncing a HE shell counted towards blocked damage?

I sort of understand why damage "blocked" off HE shells isn't counted as real blocked damage, but seems a bit ridiculous that if you bounce the actual HE shell it isn't counted as bounced damage.

You can't bounce an HE shell.

It's just that the HE pen is not good enough to pen all your armor to do any damage. As HE damage gets "nullified" if the armor is to thick. So you don't bounce it. So thus it still don't count.

You cant bounce then but the indicator for them is black just like a bounced shell.
