USB mass storage devices will normally show up on the safely remove hardware icon - so flash memory drives, hard drives, cameras etc. will show up there.

 

USB hardware such as audio interfaces / hubs / keyboards / mice / scanners / tv tuners will generally not show up on the safely remove hardware icon , but you still get the sounds when connecting & disconnecting them & they do show up in Device Manager. 

 

So I don't think you have a problem.
