The filtering functionality is available only when plug-ins upload modules are used as it is explained in this documentation article and it is based on their own functionality when the window is opened. That is why the issue you described with the filters is more plug-ins issue(Silverlight in your case) and can not be changed from RadAsyncUpload.
Hope this will explain the issue.
