R4 has Loopback 0 4.4.4.4 in area 0
other physical interfaces as shown in the topology they are in area 1,2,3


I have configured on R4:
R4#sh run | beg ip prefix
ip prefix-list INTO-AREA3 seq 5 deny 2.2.2.2/32
ip prefix-list INTO-AREA3 seq 10 permit 0.0.0.0/0 le 32
ip prefix-list INTO-AREA3 seq 15 deny 192.168.14.0/24
ip prefix-list INTO-AREA3 seq 20 deny 192.168.24.0/24

router ospf 1
 area 3 filter-list prefix INTO-AREA3 in

when I go to R3 I see the routes below still there when they should be filtered out:
192.168.14.0/24
192.168.24.0/24

I have changed the sequence number of this command to sequence 25:
ip prefix-list INTO-AREA3 seq 25 permit 0.0.0.0/0 le 32

and now I see the filtering worked. When I go to R3 which is in area 3. I do not see the routes:

192.168.14.0/24
192.168.24.0/24

Any Expert to explain the logic that the route has used in regard to the  ip prefix-list sequences. ?

Thank you
