This is a standard IRC behavior for channel non-members.
If you do not join a channel you may list its participants and send
messages to channel.
You're not listed on channel and do not receive its messages, because
you did not join it yet.

(Yes, most channels today are configured to not allow outside peeking
and outside messages, but the standard behavior is what I described.)
