It's not clear at all that it's a bug rather than a feature.
I think if it's a bug, the bug is in longlines.el since it is longlines
which decides that soft-newlines are basically "display only artifacts".

In most other contexts, soft newlines are much more real (they're soft, but
they're newlines nevertheless).
