I started investigating this some more, there is much more rendering problems here.

for example, disbling rendering of front footprints disables all the F.Silk, F.Fab, adhesive and many more.

Disabling the rendering of Text on the front only disables text belonging to a footprint, no other. Basically the Render tab does not do what it says at all.

A lot of this seems to because of what is set in pcb_draw_panel_gal.cpp:417

There is a lot of SetRequired-> (layer, layer)

And that implementation seems broken, could someone shed some light on the purpose there?

Given that the legacy canvas will hopefully be removed in the v6
development cycle, I guess this issue will go away.

True, but I wanted to point out that as far as I was concerned it hasn't always been this way. I would still expect the pads to disappear if I turn off display of front and back pads.
