It's not a "problem".  It's what exec is designed to do.  It replaces
the bash process with some other program.  The child of the terminal,
which was formerly bash, is now "man".  When man exits, the terminal
should also exit.  Except that apparently you have some unusual terminal
that doesn't simply exit when its child exits.  So you're seeing some
weird internal thing specific to your terminal.
