I wouldn't conclude anything from how the NETS translator rendered AORATOS regarding how the LXX understood the term.  Hopefully the NETS translator has translated responsibly; however, it only reveals how the NETS translator understood the LXX usage.

I see that NETS has "invisible" for AORATOS which seems to indicate that the translator of Genesis LXX has done just that, namely, he has rendered the usual meaning of the Greek adjective.
