Question regarding idle animation markers

So I got tired of seeing all my settlers either conglomerating around a random spot in their settlement, or dogpiling into one particular plot (either a bar or one of the clinics), so I was pleased to discover the idle animation markers in the WRK library. Great! If the idiots won't actually go to their assigned jobs and be there when I come looking during working hours, at least I can give them something else to do that will give the settlement a lived-in look.

Problem is, they don't use them. I set up a bunch of markers - leaning against a wall, reading a paper, sitting by the fire, etc - and the idiots still conglomerate around the bar or clinic. They'll use the vanilla idle markers just fine, but the ones with the WRK are not utilized. Is there a setting that I'm overlooking?

Sounds like we need to do some sanity-checking and testing.

Personally I lack the time for this…

I have used one WRK idle marker. No settler has ever used it. I've seen Viceroy stand literally one step away from it but that's as close as it's come to being used
