To add to Bryan's wisdom, whether a user (sighted or not) can tell if an element will become enabled based on other interactions is really a UX issue. If it's not clear, then you'd need additional information on the page. Whether that information is *required*, with respect to WCAG, is debatable. From a UX perspective, I think it's needed. From a WCAG perspective, you might argue that it fails either 2.4.6 because the labels aren't descriptive enough or 3.3.2 because incomplete instructions are given on how to use the interface. But whether it's required or not should be irrelevant. You should do what's good for all users and make it clear.
