As far as I've known, this is the intended behavior. The current UI does not really support the bulk editing of potentially dozens or hundreds of post. It's not a tool to manage your post's categories, but to assign them in bulk. I'm going to create a new ticket that deals with the label verbiage so that it's easier to understand.

Thanks for the report, we're already tracking this issue in #11302.

In the meantime, Batch-Move Posts plugin might be helpful.
