Yes. However, what you are reporting is not a bug, but a usage issue on
your part.

You need to use one of these two constructs, to explicitly tell cd that
your directory name starts with '-' rather than being an option that cd
tries to interpret:

cd -- --SMSBOOT-sources-/*
cd ./--SMSBOOT-sources-/*

This is true for most unix-y commands, not just cd.
