FDW Question

When Ben turns the wheel the Losties travel back in time and the Island disappears right in front of the Oceanic 6. The Others presumably aren’t affected by the FDW/flashes. So I’m wondering when the Island moved the Others would have to travel with it or they would be in the ocean. So wouldn’t they have had a similar flash to the losties when that happened? When Richard talked to Locke about it he said that he just disappeared right in front of him. Locke had a flash while Richard didn’t. But Richard did teleport with the island so I don’t understand why the others don’t have flashes when the FDW is turned.
