Smart mailboxes are not really mailboxes, they are ultra-fast searches using spotlight.

If you want emails to be moved out of the inbox, set up real mailboxes and rules to move mails meeting those criteria to the other mailboxes. Here's a small example from my mail program (note how I'm using smart mailboxes vs. real ones):
