I don't see that this is a bug.

In client.conf you're telling it which server to use, exclusively.  You're not
adding remote printers, you're telling it which CUPS server to talk to
everytime you use CUPS clients commands.  You don't even need to run a local
CUPS server if you configure it like this.

If you want a machine to work at both ends, I'd suggest you don't do this, and
instead run a local CUPS server, and add remote printers to that local server.
