Sculpt freeze tool doesn't show frozen/masked?

In Maya 2018 (I think also 2017) while using the sculpt tools on a model that has Arnold material applied on I noticed I had a problem seeing the masked/frozen blue paint doesnt show. Even with the option in the tool preferences 'Show frozen/masked' turned on, I still couldnt fix the problem where the blue selection doesnt show.

So the problem is that the material on the mesh is probably an Arnold material and as we all know they have been integrated into Maya since the 2018 version.

 

The problem can easily be fixed by applying once of the maya standard materials like lambert, blinn and etc.

    The fix for me was to simply change my shader to a lambert

    Still not showing after I change it to maya shader...
    It shows on the new-created polygon but not on my model even tho they have the exact same texture and shader... any thoughts?
