Public bug reported:

My usual session is "Ubuntu" (/usr/share/xsessions/ubuntu.desktop). When
I reboot my machine, on the login screen if I click the cog icon to show
the list of sessions available, a dot is displayed to the left of the
first session in the list ("GNOME"), instead of "Ubuntu".

If I don't click on a session to change it, when I log in the session
used is "Ubuntu" as expected, not "GNOME".

So the greeter fails to reflect which session is actually selected when
first displaying the dropdown, but internally it doesn't mess up with
session selection.
