If you have a branch B that builds on A, if you are renaming A to C,
you may want B to automatically set to build on C in some cases, and
in other cases your renaming A is done explicitly in order to severe
the tie between A and B and setting the latter to build on C can be
a bad thing---after all, the user's intention may be to create a
branch A starting at some commit immediately after this rename so
that B will keep building on that updated A.

So I am not sure if this is a bug.

I tend to think "git stash" was designed to work this way from day

According to the initial commit that introduced this option, it
deliberately calls strbuf_complete_line() to make sure we do not
leave an incomplete line at the end.
