There's no bug here.  No terminal emulator reads stdin before creating
the new pseudoterminal.

wooledg:~$ echo hi | xterm

wooledg:~$ echo hi | urxvt

None of these gives me anything but a regular terminal of the indicated

Even if you were to consider this a feature request, it would be a
feature request for your terminal emulator, not for bash.

If you're trying to pre-populate the input buffer of a shell in a newly
launched terminal emulator, you're about to go down some very deep
rabbit holes.  I suggest you look at tmux or screen.  Those may have
some of the features you're looking for, if my guess is on target.
