However, what gets added to the application menu is determined by the application's desktop file - reasonable locations for those are /usr/share/applications, /usr/local/share/applications and ~/.local/share/applications. Note that this is nothing GNOME Shell has invented - it is just like the "old" menu works as well (guess what happens when you add a new launcher to the menu :) ) So no, it is not a bug - thinking about it, if binaries from /usr/local/bin and /usr/bin were added automatically to the menus, you would end up with hundreds of useful entries like ls, grep, sed, awk, ... not to mention weird and untranslated names (firefox.bin instead of "Mozilla Firefox").
