Grafana 8 Nodata status not respecting "Evaluate" setting

Hello! I have an alert which, from time to time, may trigger the NoData condition due to the nature of the check. So far it’s not a problem but the problem starts happening because the alert, during NoData condition doesn’t respect “Evaluate” setting. For example i set “Evaluate every 1m for 20m” and if NoData occurs it will send the notification after 1min and not waiting 20mins. I cannot find anything about this in the docs so before creating an issue I would like to check if anyone else is facing same issue. I’m currently use Grafana Community Edition 8.4.3
