As I understand it the valve is designed with a check valve that will travel to the end of the passage and block off the line in case of a broken brake line or blown wheel cylinder. Sometimes it will stick and until it is recentered no fluid will flow to that part of the brake system. Hence you will get no fluid flow even with brake line loosened.
