Steps to reproduce

1. Open an new document
2. Press "Toggle Bulleted List" Button
3. Create a list of two or three paragraphs
4. Ctrl+A

I wouldn't call this a bug. The bullet is not a character, it is the result of the paragraph having a list assigned to it.  The only reason the other bullets are "selected" is because they are between the first and last character selected.

From a user perspective I would expect that everything I select is visible as selection.

Justin made the same comment on bug 113314, and I agree. If you select the second item in a list and shift+left extend this selection it becomes clear that this character is a property of the paragraph. And to always select the full paragraph makes would be lose the desired functionality to replace the content of a list entry. => NAB
