 :)  I have been saved by Avast from Ransom attack about three times over March to May.  I am very grateful.

Probably these tests that are made are not correct because the "file protection" module is disabled which also weakens the protection and reactions of the other protective modules. 

But on this some Avast developer should express himself to have a technical confirmation and to reassure us. :)
Thank you and good day!

Have you been infected? Why are you looking for assurance when you're not having any problems?

Better safe than sorry ... or in any case be calmer if you use one safety product rather than another. 
That's all.

Yesterday, 05/08/2022, I managed to find a zero day ransomware and tested it in a virtual machine with all modules active. The ransomware shield stopped malware and second behavior shield stopped it as well. It looks like the file module are linked to the other modules.

Look at this test.
Avast Premiun failed and the files were encrypted  ;D ... while Avast One Free did not encrypt the files ...  ???
The same malware was used:
