Note5 not showing headphones inserted

I switched from an LG G3 to a note5 about a month ago and loving it so far! The only thing that I notice is that when I insert a pair of headphones into the jack there is not icon showing that they are inserted in the notifications bar like it did on my G3. I looked through the icon glossary and saw that it said when a headset (note headset, not headphones) was inserted an icon of headphones will show up in the notifications bar. The headphones do work normally when I use them and they do not have a microphone on them. Should an icon show up whenever a pair of headphones is inserted or only when it is a headset? Thanks for any help!

The icon behavior may have changed from prior TouchWiz versions. Thought I remember the headphone icon staying visible in the notification bar while headphones were connected. There also used to be an option to pick which app you wanted to use with the headphones once connected.
