Garrisoned ranged unit attack; Bug or not?

Main question
When a crossbowman or handcannoneer is stationed within a keep or landmark like “barbarican of the sun”. The attack of that unit is displayed as that of an archer.

Is this a bug? Or is there some good reason behind this particular notion?

Follow up
Should this be changed?
Who thinks this is bad or good design?

Building arrows have the same damage no matter which unit you put inside.

Not a bug.


I think it should change for ranged units like crossbow,handcanons or javelin throwers.For example if crossbow garisoned inside of any building it needs to do crossbow shot and deal the crossbow damage.
