This is indeed the expected behavior.

I do not think this statement is factually correct. I recall that session
rotation was available for sessions being streamed over the network. What
makes you think otherwise ?

It is not impossible design-wise, but would make the implementation much more
complex and require a very significant testing effort.

Considering that there are few compelling use-cases for using both
features together, and no customer have expressed interest in this,
it is not part of our roadmap.
