[Blender] Object modifiers are not applied when object is in a hidden layer of imported Blender asset

Asset Importers


How to reproduce:
1. Open the "SampleScene" Scene in the attached "" Unity project
2. Observe the "fbx" and "blend" GameObjects in the Scene view

Expected result: both GameObjects look identical
Actual result: the "blend" GameObject has one half of a cube due to an unapplied Mirror modifier

Reproducible with: 2018.4.1f1, 2019.1.5f1, 2019.2.0b4, 2019.3.0a4

Note: the issue can be reproduced when a Blender asset is imported to Unity with objects in hidden layers with unapplied modifiers. The issue persists when manually exporting the .blend file to .fbx using Blender 2.80. Manually exporting to .fbx with Blender versions 2.78 and 2.79 applies modifiers on objects in hidden layers. Reproducible on Unity versions 2018.3.13f1 and newer, 2019.1.0f1 and newer, 2019.2.0a11 and newer, and the entire 2019.3 stream due to Unity being able to convert files in the specified versions only.
