Removing a caption's contents removes the image alignment

To reproduce this bug: first, insert an aligned image with a caption in either the classic WYSIWYG or a classic WYSIWYG block. Next, hit backspace to delete the caption within the editor. The image appears to remain properly aligned in the editor, but once you save/publish, the alignment is lost.
