I press RET at the "VC status for directory: ~/my-repo".  Here's what
I see

What if you don't just press RET, and pick the directory you wanted first?

I don't see a problem here: offering the repository root as default is a reasonable (if new-ish) behavior. We've changed it in commit f30247547, nearly two years ago, and haven't seen any other complaints so far.

I agree with the reporter: the VC status is being reported from the
top-level of the repository, as opposed to the buffer's working

It's reported from the directory you pick, as far as I can see.
