No, it is a feature. Remember that TeX was originally intented to produce
printed output only. PDF:s and cut-and-paste is a relatively recent
thing.

But it is possible to get straight single quotes with a bit of work.
See the renamed thread (RE: Character substitutions in cut+paste)
for info on how to do this.

Graham, Is the documentation generated through LaTeX with Texinfo rather
than Plain TeX with Texinfo? In that case it might be somewhat easier
to set things up so the correct single quotes are used.
