That behavior is correct.

You missed the beginning of that paragraph:
       When bash is started non-interactively,  to  run  a  shell
       script, for example, it looks for the variable BASH_ENV in
       the environment, expands its value if  it  appears  there,
       and  uses the expanded value as the name of a file to read
       and execute.
You're starting bash interactively, so $BASH_ENV is not used.
