substract from block with help of revolve, if angle # 360

I'm trying to make object with complex wholes. To simplify that made that with basic figures, but as i see subgroup works fine only when revolve's angle =360. Otherwise i see no effect. I was hoping that if j=1 in mask (closed top, side surfaces it), programme would consider that this object is closed/whole, same as when angle 180.

!please in settings make 3D as wired - to see holes inside blocks

model solid
pen 1
building_material 10	!concrete - just to see fill in section view

group "solid block"
	add -0.25*a,-0.5*b,-0.5*zzyzx
	block A,B,ZZYZX
endgroup

group "revolve romb 360"	
	si=1
	put 0,0,si
	put A*0.25, B*0.25, si
	put A*0.5, 0, si
	j1=1:	j2=1:	j3=1:	j4=1:	j5=1:	j6=1:	j7=1:	j8=0:	j9=0
	maskRevolve = j1 + j2*2 + j3*4 + j4*8 + j5*16 + j6*32 + j7*64 + j8*128 + j9*256
	revolve nsp/3, 360, maskRevolve, get(nsp)
endgroup

result = subgroup ("solid block", "revolve romb 360")
placegroup result

group "revolve romb 180"	
	model solid
	si=1
	put 0,0,si
	put A*0.25, B*0.25, si
	put A*0.5, 0, si
	j1=01:	j2=01:	j3=01:	j4=01:	j5=01:	j6=01:	j7=01:	j8=01:	j9=01
	maskRevolve = j1 + j2*2 + j3*4 + j4*8 + j5*16 + j6*32 + j7*64 + j8*128 + j9*256
	revolve nsp/3, 180, maskRevolve, get(nsp)
endgroup

add A*2,0,0
result3 = subgroup ("solid block", "revolve romb 180")	! HAS NO EFFECT - second cube remains the same, without any hole
placegroup result3

For some reason it won't work with REVOLVE.
Instead use REVOLVE{2}, then everything is fine.
