Agreed: if the quotemarks are not indented, I would expect that
the blockquote not be pulled into the list item. If they are,
though, I would expect the blockquote to go inside the list item.
Sometimes exacting indentation is useful to disambiguate.

Aside from that though, the output’s screwy tag nesting indicates
that this is a case of a bonafide bug where may be
resolving a construct in a way that is not even intended in the
syntax rules.
