I think he was asking why people say "bug" when there's no bug. In other words, why say "this is a bug" instead of "this goes against established UI practices"?
My guess is that people expect bugs to get more attention, so it's an attempt to inflate the seriousness of the problem.
Maybe some of us work in environments where everything that isn't perfect is considered a bug, so we're just used to a broad umbrella term. I know at my agency, the project managers aren't exactly well-versed in what constitutes a bug and what doesn't, and everything is simply "a bug." If there's a typo in the copy, it's a bug. If something is functional but has been targeted for upgraded functionality, then that something is buggy until it's been upgraded. If the internet connection is slow, it's a bug. I know it tends to affect me into thinking on those terms, against my better judgment...
