You don't include the comment in your selection. Put the cursor at the end of the paragraph. Move with right arrow to the right (appearance of the comment line changes). Now select text with arrow to the left.

I think the problem is, that there is no way to mark a comment at the end of a paragraph with the mouse (haven't tried with touchpad).

I'm not sure this is a bug. Try the same with bookmarks, currently the annotation mark and bookmark behavior is consistent: neither of them is moved if you drag the selection that is exactly the range of the mark.

I think the above commit started to expose this behavior for comments, as before comments with a text range did not share code with bookmarks.
