We have a large document library with custom views to bring the listed items below 5000.

When using the filters to refine the list further, it refreshes the list of filters every time one is selected or deselected (screenshots attached).

 

I understand this is likely checking the metadata attached to only show filters that apply to the remaining list items, however it's causing a lot of frustration with users having to pause and wait every time they check a filter. Is there any way to disable this feature? If someone selects an option that produces no results then it should just display that, not cause constant delays.
