There is no such thing as ":LOGBOOK:" drawers. There are property
drawers, and regular drawers. "LOGBOOK" belongs to the latter.

I think it is worth it, because it is a sane way to handle different

Property drawers are _internal_ to Org, which means the contents are to
be hidden. You can use property drawers, but think of them as
a database. Seeing the guts of a database is hardly useful. However, Org
provides tooling to read and write it, and even display it (e.g., Org
Colview) without having to expand them.

You may want to expand them to edit them, or simply retrieve
information, it is all text after all, but that's not the intended use
case, so there is no incentive to expand them automatically.
