Bug Description

Ubuntu still includes the Startup Applications app in the default install (it was dropped in gnome-session upstream years ago).

To prevent users from being able to easily disable system services that they probably shouldn't, Ubuntu makes sure that apps included by default set NoDisplay=true in their autostart files. This hides the services from the Startup Applications app.

Test Case
=========
Open Startup Applications
Does Caribou show in the list?

Other Info
==========
SSH Key Agent is intentionally in the Startup Applications list.

By the way, MATE has a similar tool but it doesn't respect NoDisplay yet.
