It is expected behavior. By checking "Apply to all tracks" you in fact say "all tracks should have these artworks". So the current result is IMHO perfectly ok and corresponds to this clear and easy logic. It is the same like editing any other field and saving it to the whole album.

I even cannot imagine how to implement your logic, it would be really confusing, e.g. only decision, whether the image in one track is really the same as in another track, is not easy (it could have slightly different data, but visually look (nearly) the same, etc.). And how would you achieve current result - synchronize the same artworks to all tracks? I think current solution is much better and clear.

I agree with Michal-the current behavior is expected. i.e. 'Apply to all files in the album/series' should apply the displayed artwork to all files on the Album/Series.

There is a usability issue, though, as the current default setting is not ideal for multiple-artist albums (since they may have unique artwork per track). i.e. if the user attempts to tag a track for which Artist |= Album Artist, then MM should have 'Apply to all files in the Album/Series' disabled by default.

[EDIT] the problem is actually even worse than originally described. Aside from a bad default in this case, the option gets re-enabled by itself causing all tracks on the album to lose their artwork even if the user disables it:
1 Select a track from a multi-artist album
2 In Properties artwork, disable 'apply to all files in the album/series'
3 Select the art and right-click Remove
--> 'Apply to all files in the album/series' gets re-enabled!!
4 Click OK
--> Artwork is deleted from all of the tracks in the album.
