Is this functioning as intended, and this info is treated less confidential than it was before, or is there a bug in the system?
Yes, this was a fairly recent change and, yes, it was intentional. These things are reviewed carefully by the general authorities responsible for records and church systems.
Even though auxiliary and priesthood quorum leaders now have access to member profiles, that doesn't mean they can see everything that a bishopric, branch presidency or clerk can see. In addition auxiliaries and quorums leaders can only see more sensitive information for those members who they have responsibility for. Even then they only see certain sensitive information which they may need. I don't know the details of exactly what each leader can see but it is more limited than unit level leadership and clerks. They can't print full membership records or IOS printouts for instance.
If you go to Other > Access Table in LCR you can see what high level functions are available to each leader. It doesn't show exactly which details in the member profile each can see but it does have a comment that, as an example, the RS President can't see the priesthood office of male members.
