Not a bug.  Consider:

$ touch '*'
$ chmod +x '*'
$ ls -F '*'

ls -F is merely appending the indicator on the end of the name as you
typed it in, even if it results in what looks like a double indicator.

Where it gets interesting is on systems where / and // are distinct, but
for consistency, we still do:

$ \ls -Fd / //
//  ///
