When I select various parts of an image to have the filter just apply to that color, nothing happens. I updated to Mac Big Sur a few weeks ago so I don’t know if that is the problem.
I just updated my LR Classic and that did not fix the issue either.
What local tool are you using and what settings are you trying to apply? A screenshot of the local tool panel would help.

Sorry. I made a mistake of replying from the email and not the forum. See below.
That said, it does appear my theory is correct in that this should be a luminance mask and not a color mask since that works perfectly.
Please provide a lot more details about what you are doing, step-by-step, leaving nothing out, and show us a screen capture of what happens.
As I look at the image more and think about this, I think this may be more of a luminance difference than color.
This is an almost 100% monotone (yellow-brown) image. The Color and Luminace Range mask will not work for selective adjustment. Try using the Adjustment Brush with Auto Mask on the area you want to change. Then use a small Erase brush to remove any spillovers.
I had posted a reply to @dj_paige but I don’t see it now. I did figure out that it was due to not enough tonal separation. I was able to use luminance range though successfully. Thanks for the help.
