True, but that's always been a bug, even before the recent changes. substitute-command-keys has never been idempotent.

I'd rather keep them [curved quotes] in the destination strings, if at all.

If I understand you correctly, curved quotes will normally be kept in destination strings so it should be OK. The only exceptions will be if users customize help-quote-translation to say that they prefer straight quotes, or if they run in an obsolescent environment that can't display curved quotes. Neither case should be common.
