All media uploaded to a View (Add Media) are present in the View Media, but media added to the default WordPress Media library is not
In Views, Custom Templates and WordPress Archives edit screens, you can only insert multimedia files attached to the current View, Custom Templates or WordPress Archives being edited.
The reason is portability.
A Views object is not a regular post, but a template, and it is supposed to be exported, imported and even shared.
As templates, they must be complete on their own, which means that when exporting them they must contain each and every component they show.
When exporting Views objects, we do also export their attachments, and we do import and adjust them when they are imported.
If we were using attachments from outside their own (from WP Media Library as example), we would not be able to keep that closeness.
This is that way by design, and it is not planned to change this due to above reasons.
