OpenCL not using GPU with HAAR evaluator

As the title says, when I use a HAAR cascade (new or old format) cv::ocl::setUseOpenCL() command has no effect on detection speed or graphic card memory usage. When I change the cascade to an LBP one, switching OpenCL on and off using the aforementioned command yields almost 2x difference in achieved FPS and a significant difference in graphic card memory usage. Another weird thing is that this happens no matter whether I use cv::Mat or cv::UMat, the latter being a little slower due to data copying.
