Render Setup Problem, shader override not working with Opacity maps

Hello everyone, i have a problem with render setup, everything is fine but when i plug a shadowMatte shader in the shader override slot , the transparency map of my plane (bush) it's not working, just render planes.

Everything is ok

Real geometry

Planes without transparency mask

You could use "matte" checkbox in geometry shape node instead of shader override, when using opacity maps.
