Nope, this isn't a bug. Keyword expansions are deliberately ignored by
diff and status.

Keywords are always contracted in the repository, and in the text-base.
Keywords are *only* expanded in working files. If you compare your
working file to anything else (the text-base, or some other version from
the repository), all keywords must be contracted beforehand. If you're
comparing different versions of a file, nobody wants to see keyword
differences anyway -- it's just spurious information already available
through other channels.
