Operation of directionals and vehicle avoidance

Can someone say for certain - in that they've seen this:

I pass a car on the left, turn on my directional to indicate a lane change back into the right lane after passing

and I get a warning from the system there is a car close by. No surprise, I just passed one.

BUT - the clicking stops. So my question - Is the outside signal flashing anyway to alert the driver I just passed?
or is it shut off so that when I do pull in front of the driver, they'll be pissed off thinking I didn't signal?

I find this annoying. When I turn my signal on, I want it on. No matter what the car thinks.

Thanks.

If you just tap the signal lever, it will flash 3 times and stop.

And the same question persists...if the ticking doesn't occur - does the car still signal with flashing directionals or does it fail to do so?

Does the indicator on the dash flash when you operate the signal?
