GEOM label of a read-only partition is not properly handled

I have an UFS partition mounted read-only. There is a label on it, and 
it appears twice under dev: as ad10s1h and as ufs/LIBRARY. Unlike 
RW-mounted filesystems, the entry under ufs is not deleted after 
mounting (either using /dev/ad10s1h or /dev/ufs/LIBRARY as special 
argument of mount).

Was this behavior remarked by others? I have not found a PR about this, 
I maybe should do this, right?
