Genital warts with negative HPV test?

Age 35, have never had an abnormal Pap smear, and am tested for STDs and have Paps regularly. I had a somewhat itchy "**m" (generaly only after shaving there), and asked my doctor to take a look, thinking maybe a hemorrhoid? I did notice bumps, but no different than those I see/feel when shaving my bikini line. My doctor quickly diagnosed as genital warts and froze them off. All tests were negative with a normal Pap.

Wouldn't it show up in an HPV test and/or Pap test if I had genital warts?
