This is intentional. According to the doc string of set-mark-command:

    Also push the old mark on global mark ring, if the previous mark was
    set in another buffer.

On the other hand, the manual disagrees:

    Each time you set a mark, in any buffer, this is recorded in the
    global mark ring in addition to the current buffer's own mark ring.
