Probably thing are not clear:

1) a wire is a wire
2) a face is a face

a closed wire could be used to make a face, but is a different object.

Some hints:

And about the relations between curves and toposhapes:

I dare to disagree. While this is true for a single wire - where a crosssection is either a point or the complete wire - it can be interesting in connection with other objects where the section point is relative to other objects.

So should I file a bug report?
Also tested with FreeCAD 0.20, Libs: 0.20R29177 (Git) (appimage) and same results.

It's good to edit and add that to the OP but it's better to also make new post linking the issue, I personally don't reread posts often, I just go to the unread posts in the thread. I would imagine many other people do the same
