cells can not be removed in snappyhexmesh when using stl file

I am learning the snappyhexmesh tool in openfoam. I made a stl file by solidworks to define a cylinder surface.
The cells inside the cylinder can be refined, but the cells from the background mesh outside the target domain did not get removed even the locationInMesh was set inside the target domain.
I have check the stl file by "surfaceCheck", it is fine, and it is a closed surface.
Anyone can help me?

Your refinement surface in your castellatedMeshControls section is not actually named "cylinder.stl" it is actually named "outSurface". Change your refinement surface name in the castellatedMeshControls section to actually match what you have defined in your geometry section, and you will see some castellation happening. If you haven't already, there are some great snappyHexMesh presentations out there from past workshops located on the wiki.
