I understand your concern, but, as far as I can tell, that's not a bug.

Lists have precedence over LaTeX snippets. In other words, you're asking
to start a list here, and Org starts one.

Also, that this kind of line won't appear automatically[1] (during
filling), so Org assumes it's here on purpose.

Regards,

[1] Now, if it does, that's indeed a bug.
