Yes, the content below a `content-visibility: hidden` element have boxes. This is very important to support the cached-rendering and measurement use cases.

I agree that we should make `scrollIntoView` do nothing for hidden elements, similar to how fragment navigations do nothing. The spec could say, in step 6, "If the element does not have any associated layout box, *or is not available to user-agent features*, then return.". The "not available..." copies the spec text that is [already here](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-contain-2/#valdef-content-visibility-hidden).
