That is not a bug. When you do (global-visual-line-mode)  [which
should better be (global-visual-line-mode 1), BTW], the function adds
code to several hooks to check for new buffers (find-file-hook, etc.).

In your first case, the global mode is active (so the hooks are
active); when you run find-file, it creates the buffer, runs
html-mode-hook (disabling visual-line-mode), and finally a hook is run
which activates the mode.

In the second case, you activate the global mode, run find-file (and
the hooks check that visual mode is active, so do nothing), and
finally run visual-off-fill-on, deactivating the visual-line mode.

If you want to deactivate the mode automatically after find-file,
there are several ways, like an `after' advice for find-file, or
adding code to the relevant hooks, etc.
