deliver and p acl

I don't understand why the 'p' acl for 'anyone' is needed when using 'deliver -m'.  

While logged in as user 'tester' if I use the command

  deliver -m test-folder tester

followed by a message, instead of going into user.tester.test-folder the message 
goes into the inbox.  cyradm's "lam user.tester.test-folder" command shows that user 
'tester' has 'p' access rights.  To get what I want I have to add the 'p' acl for 

The man page for deliver says "If the ACL on any such mailbox does not grant the 
sender the "p" right..".  In my case I am logged in as "tester", so surely "the 
sender" does have 'p' rights.

Should this be regarded as a bug?
