One can argue if it is a bug or a missing feature. At the moment
dpkg clearly does not support LC_CTYPE or any other form of locale
support (beyond what gettext does).
We also said a while ago that we would add proper locale support
to dpkg. Until then if you want to help please work on translating
the documentation or stress-test dpkg 1.10.
