No surge rating bonus on companions?

While I am not exactly a new player per se, I thought my question best fits here since there is no dedicated companion or mechanics forum out there.

I am playing a Sith Warrior and recently I got my SI / close range damage dealer companion. (not spoiling anything with giving names out, but I guess you know who I mean).

When I was getting new mods for that companion, some of them had surge rating on them. Now my problem is that despite the equipment having surge rating it is not shown on the character sheet. There the value is still 0 with no bonus added.

Therefore my question is does surge rating only work on player characters and not on companions or is this simply a display bug that should be reported?

Any info on this topic would be highly appreciated.

Thank you

Try un-equipping and then re-equipping the modded item. I've found that switching out mods on companion equipped items doesn't change the companion's stats until you do that (bug).
