According to

FILTER_NULL_ON_FAILURE is described as "Returns NULL for unrecognized boolean values.", used with FILTER_VALIDATE_BOOLEAN.

But this flag also affects other, non-boolean, filters.

Test script:
var_dump(filter_var("123a", FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL, FILTER_NULL_ON_FAILURE)); // null
var_dump(filter_var("123a", FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)); // false

var_dump(filter_var("123a", FILTER_VALIDATE_INT, FILTER_NULL_ON_FAILURE)); // null
var_dump(filter_var("123a", FILTER_VALIDATE_INT)); //false

var_dump(filter_var("123a", FILTER_VALIDATE_IP, FILTER_NULL_ON_FAILURE)); // null
var_dump(filter_var("123a", FILTER_VALIDATE_IP)); //false

// etc
