I would like to know if I joined a closed group or secret group, will those groups appear in the group section of my profile?

I know even I hide the group section, people will still able to see the post from timeline.

I want an expert to confirm that if I joined those closed and secret groups won't appear in my profile, so that my friends will not know.

How do I hide or unhide a group?
To hide or unhide a group:
Go to the group you want to hide or unhide
Click  in the top-right corner
Select Hide Group or Unhide Group
Note: If you hide a group, you'll still be a member, but you won't get notifications or see posts from the group in your News Feed. The group will also be removed from your favorites and bookmarks.
