Well yes, the filter you show is not "blue", but more likely "light cyan-blue". It is probably meant for coloring tungsten light sources to give an impression of "blue" compared to unfiltered light. The reason why it passes so much green and even red is to increase light output level for tungsten light sources that are low in blue wavelengths. In fact, that curve is quite close to 80A color temperature conversion filter! No, it's probably more close to 80B or even 80C. There's so much red passed.
