Validate Action Failed But Other Actions Continue To Fire

I am currently working on a formwizard page. I have been noticing some weird issues where I have the following actions firing as a named action:

"namedActions": {
        "addressSearch": [{
            "action": "validate"
        }, {
            "action": "runUtilityHook",
            "options": {
                "type": "addressSearch"
        "onFormLoad": []

Once the validate action finishes and it fails ( required fields were empty ), the named action still fires off the next action that runs afterwards. I don’t think this is what should happen. I would think if “validate” failed, then no other actions would run unless there was a onFailed_actions action available.

Let me know if you need me to paste the schema for my page.

I’m using bf-latest BetterForms version and I have a similar “validate, then run utility hook” action and the utility hook does not run for me if the form is not valid.
