Which matches the documentation:

    REP is either a string used as the NEWTEXT arg of `replace-match' or a
    function.  If it is a function, it is called with the actual text of each
    match, and its value is used as the replacement text.  When REP is called,
    the match data are the result of matching REGEXP against a substring
    of STRING.

The "actual text of each match" is (match-string 0), not (match-string
