Yes, it currently is by design.
Ideally, it should look at volume's attributes and see if it's a case-sensitive file system, if it's a case-preserving, etc., and then act accordingly. But at the moment it doesn't. It is also not a trivial change to make (but not a terribly complicated one either), it's just that there's little demand for it, so it's not on a priority list.
