Not a bug. From ipfw(8) manual page:

     fwd | forward ipaddr[,port]
             Change the next-hop on matching packets to ipaddr, which can be
             an IP address or a host name.  The search terminates if this rule

             If ipaddr is a local address, then matching packets will be for-
             warded to port (or the port number in the packet if one is not
             specified in the rule) on the local machine.
             If ipaddr is not a local address, then the port number (if speci-
             fied) is ignored, and the packet will be forwarded to the remote
             address, using the route as found in the local routing table for
             that IP.
