I think the reason of this issue is that in some cases where subplan
is at some node other than top_plan node, we allow them to be executed
in the worker in force_parallel_mode.  It seems to me that the
problematic code is below check in standard_planner()

if (force_parallel_mode != FORCE_PARALLEL_OFF &&
best_path->parallel_safe &&
top_plan->initPlan == NIL)

Here instead of checking whether top_plan has initPlan, it should
check whether initPlan is present anywhere in plan tree.  I think one
simple way could be to check *glob->subplans* instead of
top_plan->initPlan, another possibility is to traverse the whole tree
to see if initPlan is present.
