Ultimately, all honeypots work in this way. But you’re right, if a bot is specifically programmed to look for hidden fields and ignore them (remember, there are reasons that fields could be hidden that are not related to being a honeypot), they won’t be caught by a honeypot. That said, the plugin has features that help mask this as much as possible — such as moving the style off the element (into <style> tags) and the ability to re-write the HTML in any way you feel would improve the honeypot’s disguise.
