Bulk edits don't update "last edited by..." which user

On a multi-author site, I made some bulk edits to some posts' categories. These posts were previously created and last updated by other users.

In the editor for the individual posts, it now says "Last updated by [previous user] on [date and time I made the changes]", which is incorrect. It looks like the bulk editor doesn't update which user last edited a post, though it does update the last modified time.

I would expect it to say "Last updated by [my username]..." - which is what it does if I quick edit an individual post, or change the categories on the full post edit page.

I've found the same behaviour on two different sites, and both on standard pages and categories, and on a custom post type and custom taxonomy.
