This is great news, since it means that the code works as intenended
but probably with slightly different intentions.

Data stored for higher bitdepths per pixel than 8 are assumed to be
stored with a linear gamma ramp, a higher level code where you
probably could do a similar tweak without changing core babl behavior
could be in ... digging through GIMP code ...
gimp/app/gegl/gimp-babl.c which contains code determining the data
expected to be managed, for all arbitrary profile source imagery it
would be recommended to store layer data in floating point.
