It does not write into "thin air" but onto an "inode" of the
file systems.

That your directory entry does not point to the "inode",
the application is writing to, it not the applications fault -- but
almost surely yours...

A bug is a behaviour different from the promissed/documented one.

You should read the documentation for your filesystem: you will
learn about "inode"s and "directory entries" and that the
deletion of a "directory entry" does not necessarily remove
the "inode" it points to.

That's a feature -- documented -- and therefore not a bug.
