Not a bug.
If you are using PageContext.getAttribute() (directly) to get the value of a
configuration variable, you must append the name of the scope to the name of the
configuration variable. Applied to your example, use this:

  <%= pageContext.getAttribute("javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.fmt.locale.page") %>

Alternatively, you may use

  <%= javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.core.Config.find(pageContext,
"javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.fmt.locale") %>
which appends the scope automatically.
