It's not wrong, since record w/preroll does start recording immediately.

The region is only trimmed at rec-stop (and can later be expanded backwards)

When I say incorrect, I mean it conflicts with my expectations of how pre-roll should work based on the behaviour in other DAW's.

For instance:

If the current behaviour in Ardour is an intentional design rather than just a result of how it is currently implemented then I can close this issue, but I find the current behaviour confusing and inconsistent with the final result of recording.
