Confirmed, in text mode. Even just `C-a' returns to the `a' and not bol.
And this is the case at least as far back as Emacs 20.
`C-a' and `C-S-a' is bound in text mode to `beginning-of-line-text'
(not to `beginning-of-line'). The doc for that command does not
seem to cover the case of `|'. It says only that it "moves past the
lef-margin indentation, the fill-prefix, and any indentation used
for centering or right-justifying the line".
The culprit seems to be `adaptive-fill-mode'.
(looking-at adaptive-fill-regexp) returns t.
The doc string should mention this part of the behavior, I think.
It seems that the point-moving behavior here is not a bug, but
there is a doc bug here.
