No, this is a feature clearly explained in the Troff User's Manual,
which groff happens to implement correctly.

This is not really necessary.  I think it's okay if the macros
refer to fonts by number (at least, that's how I do it), and
the user uses macros like ".I" that do all the work and provide
the italic font consistent with the base font.
