Thanks @shayatik!

I was able to reproduce this, but only while using the Classic Editor. It looks like it works correctly up until 4.8.

I was unable to reproduce this issue in the new block editor, so I am going to mark this as a low priority bug. If someone would like to create a patch for this, it can be considered for inclusion. But, since this is not a bug that breaks anything, it won't be prioritized.
