It's because the Combinator translates incoming Gate/CV to MIDI note messages that it passes on to the instruments inside.
If not, you would have to wire up every instrument inside the Combi with Gate/CV, and that wouldn't be very feasible...
Yes, and it responds to players as you would expect, so this behaviour relates only to direct CV gate/inputs.

But it is also not expected behavior (since no other synth works this way in Reason), and because of that it's also not the "Reason Way".
With all due respect I am more interested in creative potential than convention
Correct me if I am wrong but there is some functionality in this implementation that is not achievable in any other way currently within Reason.
For example, I can split a matrix and send one gate/note direct to Autosub and the other to a combinator containing Autosub - i.e. Autosub receives the same gate/note from 2 different sources. I can then delay the direct gate/note to create a note echo type of effect and can modulate the Octave/Semi/Fine/Key parameters which will only affect the Combinator gate/note input with no effect on the direct note/gate sequence. When you add portamento it gets even more interesting.
It's ok to be different?
edit to add example...
