Sounds like API does not check the $wgDisableHardRedirects setting [0].

The possibility of resolving both normal redirects and redirects to the
Special:-namespace is intended. However there is a setting (which is true on
wikimedia wikis [1] ) to disable this. The API should check for that also.

I've tried to reproduce this but did not succeed [2] [3].

@Umherirrender: Could you link to an example where this is happening ?
