Actually you didn't look close enough. There is a component
trace from the U1-2 up to the Via. But the reason I respond
is that pcbnew does not draw the current layer last. This
is a handy feature while adding tracks, I was used to in PCB12
...someday, maybe somebody or I will add this feature to pcbnew!
I did an export specctra of my lcd.brd design and see I need to
add a feature that outputs the pin nets from XML4PCB inorder to
try the free-router.
