Update of bug #55532 (project make):

                  Status:                    None => Not A Bug              
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #3:

The issue here is that although make runs a recipe to build the target, the
target is not actually built.  If you change the bar target to something that
creates the target:

bar: ; touch $@

then you'll get the output you expect even with SECONDARY:

touch bar
newer prerequisites are: bar baz

I think you are correct this is a bug, though.
