I'm guessing you linked the file names.

If you can repeat this without specifying any options to cp,
then it might be a bug in cp, but it's quite unlikely,
so I'm closing this for now.

These commands should verify:

env cp x y
[ $(stat -c %i x y | uniq | wc -l) = 1 ] && echo possible cp bug
cp --version
