Thanks, now I've got it.

In fact, it is not an error. ffap offers you what it gets: opening an
absolute file name in the first two cases. The reason that it works with
relative file names, is a collateral damage: It uses `expand-file-name'
towards the default directory, which is remote.

Reading the code of ffap.el, there is some special handling for
ange-ftp. This explains, why it works for that method.

However, I believe your expectations are valid. I will bring it to the
emacs-devel mailing list, asking whether it is OK to change ffap.el such
a way.
