I don't think that it is broken. But as nowaday almost every
document loads a package which sets the page specification
(hyperref, graphicx, drivers, geometry, KOMA-classes ...) the global
paper size isn't effective very often and the documentation paper
size wins normally. 

(I never rely on the global setting and always make sure that my
document sets the paper size correctly).
