Here's a little extra color on the subject. This is from the XEP User Guide at http://www.renderx.com/reference.html#Linguistic_LineBreaking

If the hyphenate attribute is set to "true" and all hyphenation conditions (hyphenation-push-character-count, hyphenation-remain-character-count, etc.)
are satisfied, then line-break is permitted after a soft hyphen (U+00AD). A soft hyphen at the end of a line is replaced by the text specified in the
hyphenation-character attribute; all other soft hyphens are suppressed.

To me, that says lines can break after soft hyphens ONLY if hyphenate="true". And that is consistent with the behavior I get.

Am I interpreting this wrong? Do you get a different behavior?
