It does use it, but that doesn't mean it works. Save as and export
bitmap default to empty file names, not the current filename or a
variation of it. Also files that have different extensions aren't
visible in the view, so you always have to start typing in the filename
when you open the export dialog for the first time for a new document as
you can't click on the svg file and just change the extension.

These bugs didn't exist when Inkscape used the GTK+ file dialog, and
have existed since migrating to the native dialog several years ago. My
point is that the way Inkscape uses the Windows native file dialog
should not be used as any kind of direction, guide or proof of concept
for what could or should be done with GIMP.
