Importing from DSM library doesn't bring sibling symbols (states)

Importing a "component" from the DSM library doesn't bring in the sibling symbols. They're all nested in the same folder but they're not available to switch to in the overrides panel using the "symbol" dropdown.

DSM library:

Overrides panel only shows the single "component" I imported:


So, now I need to import all the different states - whereas previously, I only need to bring in one state and the siblings would be available.


This is frustrating and tedious. Especially when I'm asking my users to do the same when I want this to be a more automatic process. What's the point of a "component" if you still need to bring in the states individually?

Also frustrating: not being able to select the group of "states" and import into my Sketch file unless I do it one by one.
