If you wonder what a command does, look at the command's doc string
(via, for instance, `C-h k C-a').  It usually explains most things:


C-a runs the command move-beginning-of-line (found in global-map),
which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in ‘simple.el’.

It is bound to C-a, <home>.

(move-beginning-of-line ARG)

Move point to visible beginning of current logical line.
This disregards any invisible newline characters.

With argument ARG not nil or 1, move forward ARG - 1 lines first.
If point reaches the beginning or end of buffer, it stops there.
(But if the buffer doesn’t end in a newline, it stops at the
beginning of the last line.)


There doesn't seem to be a bug here, so I'm closing this report.
