ECU only records the unplugged actuator. This is because youre breaking the electrical current to that solenoid telling it that theres a problem with it, ergo storing a code. However, if you just plug up the line with the BB or pellet or whever, it doesnt see it as a break in current, probably doesnt even know if its open or not. Its the vacuum that closes and opens the valve.
