No it works, if you start in the left bottom cell. But anyway, it's an error so I confirm it

Table --> Select --> Table selects only the three left hand side columns.
Copy and Paste doesn't paste the fourth, right hand side column.

This one describes a particular appearance of "Issue 124959 - Table: Selection inconsistence for merged cells"

There can be found some formal arguments to justify the current behavior, but the complained behavior is unintuitive. I would expect that a selection will include maximum range covered by merged cell.
