There is technically no reason at all to reset sessions, so if JunOS
resets, it's IMNSHO a bug.

You are just describing that the programmers were too lazy to properly
port the session context to the new internally created group and
preferred to just reset all sessions to "clean up" the internal data
structures after the change. :-)
