explicitly configuring node protection

I'm wondering what functionality this command gives?
tunnel mpls traffic-eng fast-reroute "node-protect"

FRR local protection can be either link or node, node is preferred by default. I created a topology with only a link protection bypass tunnel available and set the primary tunnel explicitly with the "node protection" keyword. I was expecting after protected interface failed, the tunnel would go down, wasn't the case, its rerouted using link protection.
Anyone know what exactly the "node-protect" knob does?
Networking, sometimes i love it, mostly i hate it.Its all about the $$$$
