Issue

When the categoryList GraphQL method is used to get child categories it shows the product_count as 0 for parent categories.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Use the following GraphQL request to get the category hierarchy with product_count:

{
  categoryList(filters: { ids: { eq: "2" } }) {
    id
    name
    product_count
    level
    children {
      name
      product_count
      level
      children {
        name
        product_count
        level
        children {
          name
          product_count
          level
          children {
            name
            product_count
            level
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Expected results:

If the parent category is an anchored category, then the product_count should show the sum of child category product counts on every level.

Actual results:

If the parent category is an anchored category, then the products are shown as 0 for category level 2 and downwards.
