PWA Notifications don't appear as system notifications

I have installed the Outlook PWA and enabled notifications. However, I usually miss these notifications because they’re always displayed on top of the Outlook window, which isn’t on my main screen.

When I try out the Brave notifications test it creates a system-level notification, which is more useful because it stays in the Action Centre until dealt with.

But the Outlook PWA does not seem to invoke these system-level notifications. Why not? The option in Outlook is labelled “Desktop notifications” but the implementation doesn’t seem to me to be genuine desktop notifications - they’re essentially HTML overlays on the underlying webpage.

Is this due to an implementation or limitation of the PWA?

Is this Outlook’s fault?
