Function tab-completion not matching that of wrapped command

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I’ve got a function defined in my fish shell:

function cl --wraps=cd
    cd $argv && ls -l --color=auto

According to man function, the --wraps option "causes the function to inherit completions from the given wrapped command."

However, when I type cl and start to tab-complete, I’m shown options which include non-directories (like .c files). However, when I type cd and then tab-complete, I’m only shown directories.

Did I define my function incorrectly?
