InstantSearch Magento 2 category page URL doesn't change when removing category filter

Hi, so when you use InstantSearch to replace the Magento 2 category pages, it uses the Magento URL structure sit/category/subcategory?query and then auto selects the correct category facet to filter on.

However, when you clear that facet filter, the URL remains the same. So if you are searching and end up in a different category, look at a product, then use the browser back button, you end up with that category page again, re-selecting the category you cleared.

Is it possible to update the URL to reflect when the category has been removed?
