START /elevated and PcaSvc?

In general, "START /elevated program" does not cause the Program Compatibility Assistand Service to start.

And "START [tcc]" does not cause PcaSvc to start.

But "START /elevated [tcc]" does cause PcaSvc to start.

Does anyone know what's going on there?
 
Not reproducible here.
Hmmm! I'm not doing anything very tricky.
Code:
v:\> sc query pcasvc & start /elevated & delay 5 & sc query pcasvc

SERVICE_NAME: pcasvc
        TYPE               : 30  WIN32
        STATE              : 1  STOPPED
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0

SERVICE_NAME: pcasvc
        TYPE               : 30  WIN32
        STATE              : 4  RUNNING
                                (STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, ACCEPTS_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0
