A modal dialog disables the parent window (if Modality.WINDOW_MODAL) or
all other windows (if Modality.APPLICATION_MODAL). This includes not
processing mouse events, such as window_enter, which means that custom
cursors don't get activated for the disabled window.
Native apps also tend to work this way. For example, when you run
Notepad (Windows 7 or 10), it sets a custom cursor to the text insertion
cursor (the I-bar cursor). If you type some text and then hit the close
button, the modal "Save" dialog that comes up will prevent the custom
cursor from being shown.
So yes, it is working as intended, and this is not a bug.
