I'm assuming that you mean when you're building up the JQL it is doing that? If so, it's because it isn't context sensitive, so at each point you'll get all available options.

I generally start my JQL with project=, at which point it will offer all projects in our instance of Jira. Then if I go to status=, it will offer all statuses, even those that aren't available to my project.

As stated, it isn't context sensitive

Thanks for the Reply Warren,

No, I am using the basic search, so i choose the Project first in the filter and then while i click on the status drop down, it is giving me a list of status which are not part of the workflow of the selected Project
