Strange blinker stalk behavior. Bug maybe?

As backstory, occasionally when changing lanes and pressing the blinker stalk the opposite way to cancel blinkers, it accidentally turned on the blinkers for the wrong direction (and blinked 3 times, making me feel stupid and wondering if the people around me think I got my license week ago).

I just recently learned that you can also flick the stalk to same direction you're changing lane to, and it'll still turn off the blinkers. Brilliant, no more accidental blinking.

Yesterday noticed something, and tried couple times. Happens every time:

-Drive with EAP engaged
-Turn on blinker for lane change
-Get bored waiting for the car to change lane so you yank the wheel to manually change lane (and thus disable auto-steer)

If you do that, the "flick stalk to same direction" doesn't cancel the blinking anymore. To turn off blinking now you must flick the opposite direction.

Anyone else notice same? I assume it's just not my car.

Yeah that happens at least once a day for me
