Ooops this is unrelated to bug 329212 Actually it's invalid I think as SVG objects are replaced elements so you should see the svg's tooltips and not the object tooltip.
Resolution: DUPLICATE → INVALID
More to the point, SVG in <object> is treated as a document (like HTML in <object>), not as an image. So the comparisons to image formats aren't really relevant.
You could always stick some absolutely positioned div on top of the SVG and have a tooltip on that. Of course you wouldn't be able to interact with the SVG but if you're just using them as scalable bitmaps maybe that's OK for you.
