This is not a bug, but a misunderstanding + undocumented default.
Src blocks, including inline src blocks, can be exported as code,
results of evaluation, and both. (this is likely your misunderstanding)
By default, unlike ordinary src blocks, inline src blocks are only
exported as results - code is not exported, only the result is exported.
(undocumented default).
Further, because Org is not always able to evaluate src blocks (when the
relevant ob-*.el is not loaded), inline src blocks can sometimes be
exported as code. This is likely what happens when you change the blocks
type to bash (I guess).

The inline src block defaults should probably be documented. See
Patches are welcome.

The confusing behavior about exporting results for code blocks when the
corresponding ob-*.el is not loaded is trickier. We had a related
discussion on this topic in
Though I am not sure how we can improve the situation. Ideas are
