It's not a bug. It is clearly explained in section 17 of the Transform spec. An additive scale of 2 and 0.5 combine to produce a scale of 1. An additive scale of 1.25 and 0.75 combine to produce a scale of 0.9375. I was expecting Core Animation behavior which I guess is normalized to produce my previous expectations. The updated scale test is:

Thank you for not letting my own errors and misunderstandings negatively affect your opinion of the negative delta pattern.
