The issue seems to stem from the code base running an array_merge for every post being updated that combines it's pre-update categories with any new categories selected in the bulk edit panel. This creates a situation in which the bulk edit can only ever add categories to posts and will never remove a category.

By preventing this array_merge the bulk edit panel treats every post as a blank canvas and adds only the categories selected during the edit process.

Visually this falls in line with user expectations as all the categories are unchecked by default when a user goes to bulk edit posts.
