That's not a layer mask. That's a normal pixel layer clipped to the underlying pixel layer.

 

Add a layer mask by clicking the mask icon in the Layers panel. It will appear as an additional thumbnail beside the pixel thumbnail. A mask is always black and white. Black areas hide the pixel content, white reveals.

 

Here's how layer masks look:

The appearance of the top Layer in a Clipping Mask Group obviously depends on the base Layer. 

So what are the base Layer’s Opacity, Fill, Transparency of the actual pixels, …? 

 

According to your screenshot it is semi-transparent, so the result would seem to be as expected.

That's right. The underlying layer is transparent, so this is all as it should be.
