Technically this is not a bug, as the functionalities are different:

- the session status (a.k.a. Do Not Disturb mode) suppresses
  banners temporarily - however notifications are still queued up
  and banners will be shown when the session gets active again

- the switch in Notification Settings disables banners altogether,
  so turning it on again will only affect future notifications, i.e.
  banners that were suppressed by the setting are not replayed

It's incredibly subtle though, and something we should keep in mind if
Do-Not-Disturb is exposed again.
