Hmm, I think that's a bug, dating back to this commit:

commit 2254367435fcc4a31cc3b6d8324e33c5c30f265a
Author: Robert Haas <rh...@postgresql.org>

    Make EXPLAIN (BUFFERS) track blocks dirtied, as well as those written.

    Also expose the new counters through pg_stat_statements.

    Patch by me.  Review by Fujii Masao and Greg Smith.
