Why does "Conditional access qualifier expression is known to be not null" trigger?

I have this code where I attempt to get the remote endpoint IP address from a WCF Service for debugging/logging:

var endpoint = (RemoteEndpointMessageProperty)OperationContext.Current?.IncomingMessageProperties?[RemoteEndpointMessageProperty.Name];

The ?[] conditional element access triggers the above mentioned rule:


However, looking at the reference sources, it seems that IncomingMessageProperties could very well be null:

        public MessageProperties IncomingMessageProperties
                Message message = this.clientReply ?? this.request;
                if (message != null)
                    return message.Properties;
                    return null;




Is this a bug or am I missing something?
