I think this is expected. It depends on where you drag it to in the new window. If you drag it to the first position in the tab strip, then it's gonna stay pinned. If you drop it after an un-pinned window, it will be unpinned.

However, the "Move to New Window" as well as just dragging the pinned tab out seems like a bug to me indeed.
