That depends on what you mean by "wrong". Bash is not following the Unix meaning of "..", which is a real directory entry in a directory, and points to the physical parent directory. Instead bash is interpreting ".." to mean "strip one entry off the path that I took to get here". I don't want to use this fancy newfangled meaning. I want the normal Unix meaning.
