Feature films as subject heading

I've found consistently in OCLC that even though a film has been
cataloged using genre subject headings, the term "feature films" is
always used as a topical heading. Is there a reason for this? Our use of
655 genre/form headings is fairly new to us, but everything we're read
tells us that when "feature films" describes what the film is, not what
it's about, is not placed in a 650. Can anyone shed any light on this
for us? Thanks!
