That sounds like it works on the basis of keywords, perhaps.

How thoroughly have you tested it, when did you do this test?

Can we check?

Can it block those images from the given category on commons, if
viewed on the actual pages they are used for on wikipedia? 

And will it also block images from the subcategory - if used on wikipedia?

I might investigate or even buy this software (if not exceptionally
expensive) and test it extensively if this is the case.
