If King Shield protects the user from a move that it is immune to, will the Attack drop still activate?

So, let's say Mienshao used Poison Jab on an Aegislash that used Knight Shield. Since Aegislash is a Steel Type and wouldn't be effected by a Poison Type move anyway, would Mienshao's Attack stat drop by two stages?
If someone could get a source or test this, that would be great.

Funnily enough, King's Shield's effect doesn't activate. Just the immunity, so no attack drop.

Source: Tested, I'll add replay later
