It doesn't seem that surprising to me, especially after seeing the docs the first time. Are there environments where you can set a variable like $*CWD and it doesn't do something like chdir?

Yes, and that's normal and expected behaviour.

Huh. Thank you, I did not know that. It makes "sense" (in that I understand what's going on now that I see it, and indeed it seems almost obvious), but I certainly couldn't call it "expected" because I didn't. And I can guarantee I'm not the only one; in fact, I have no qualms about classifying that as a bug.
