ASECounter vs AD and DP in vcf file

Dear GATK developer:

Can you please explain the difference between the allele counts obtained by running ASECounter and the allele read counts provided in the AD/DP fields in vcf file. It seems that the allele counts obtained by ASECounter is similar to DP the filtered depth in the vcf? while the AD calculation includes unfiltered reads?

Thank you.
