Canonical URL missing with default permalink structure

I noticed that no canonical URL is shown when using the default permalink structure. This happens when you have pretty permalinks disabled, but it also happens when you enter a URL in the default permalink structure manually:
For example when I have a post where the URL is and I enter or (where 4 is the post ID), it shows the same post, but it does not provide a canonical URL (I assume that URL should then be

Moreover, since the manually entered URL is not redirected either, I wonder if this might have consequences with duplicate content in search engines.

It seems that the %post_type% rewrite tag is not considered at all when redirecting in redirect_canonical().

Well, I just figured that I probably misunderstood the logic there. When I specify a URL parameter in the form of ?{{POST_TYPE}}={{POST_ID}}, it is not parsed at all, is that correct? I first assumed it was, due to the issue in #31781. I guess the issue here can be closed (sorry, my fault), but we should look into why the above issue is happening at all.
