Oh, you expected Emacs to remove the hard newlines as part of the
feature?  That's right, it doesn't do that, and neither do the other
editors.  They only remove "soft" newlines, and Emacs does that as
well.  Removing hard newlines would be a misfeature, IMO, since in
this mode they are user-controlled, and Emacs has no business
second-guessing the user.

No, what you see is how it's supposed to work.
