Invisible triplet rests have a visible '3' above them (even though the rests are correctly not shown at all)

The attached example was created in MuseScore, but I've seen this in musicxml files created by music21 as well.

Vaguely related, but definitely not the same bug.

I would expect that, while Musescore should indeed import and save the tuplet bracket and show-number attributes (#315611), it should also (if all the notes/rests in the tuplet are invisible) ignore those tuplet attributes, and simply not show the bracket or number.

FYI, while MuseScore allows changing the "visible" attribute for notes and tuplets separately, MusicXML has a similar attribute "print-object" which applies to notes only. The effect on a tuplet bracket is not specified.

This means MuseScore's export is correct and the desired behaviour on import is open for discussion. I do agree it would make sense to make the tuplet bracket invisible when all contained notes are invisible, but that has simply not been implemented.
