That has been that way for a long time, maybe even since the start of Smart Filters. 

One can work-around it (at least in certain situations) but I currently can’t find a Bug Report/Feature Request on the issue.

Thank you for answer.
I was aware of the existence of this problem in previous versions of photoshop. But I've never encountered it myself.
I thought Adobe fixed everything.

I can turn this thread in a bug report.

Would you mind posting images showing the issue, and explaining how it hurts your workflow?

You should be able the Transform a Smart Filter Mask itself.  What you can not do is Link the Smart Filter Mask to the Smart object.  While it look like you can link a layer mask on the Smart Object layer to the Layers Content content. Photoshop will allow you to set the mask to have the link icon when there is warping.  There are restrictions when it come to smart object later, If you transform the Layer's content Photoshop may pop up a messages stating  no no Smart Object can not have linked layer mask.   The Smart object can be edited the object itself can have layers will linked mask as long as its not an other smart object layer.   Photoshop does not support linking mask to smart object.    So if you transform a smart object you may need to re do the masking. You may be able to do it by un-link the mask and transforming the mask itself.  However the transforming your are doing to the smart object  warping may be difficult to replicate the warping of the mask.  Also a  smart object layer can only have a single filter mask all smart filter on the layer will be masked by the same filter mask. Will the current smart filters setting be appropriate for the transformed object. You may need to also readjust all the layers smart filters settings.

i use intermediate laeyr to transform mask with source layer and replace smart filter mask with modified content. It is not very painful procedure, but for one who never has such a problem before produce some sufferingsmart_filter_transform_03.jpg
