Visible where? ( on the shell, web interface, network mount? )
and to who? ( as in user account, not you as in you )
You would also need to account for the parent directories, if the user/group does not have read for those they can't see the child directories regardless of their permissions.
And their may be other things at work in the NAS, not just filesystem permissions but some other database or whatever.
You have to fully understand how the 'native NAS management' 'works' before you can go bashing around via ssh
I'm not going to pretend I know how your NAS 'works', as I simply don't know.
but I'm fairly certain there will be some other 'layer' involved. ( I could be totally wrong )
To help you understand what is going on try this
login via ssh
then go into the GUI and change things, like add new user and give then access to the folder
back in your shell
find / -anewer ~/timestamp -type f
that will show you all files modified since you set the timestamp
from there you should have a better picture of what is going on
