To me, it's not a bug that space is added automatically when autoplace is enabled, but it is a bug that disabling autoplace for the stem doesn't override this.

I've seen examples of this. Extending the stem to make it look like the chord is in both the right and left hands of the piano staff will not conned the notes. I've noticed that it will eventually work, but by then the staves have move as part of automatic placement.

It's important because it prevents a common technique used in cross-staff notation from working ("faking" a cross-staff chord as shown in the linked article).
