Comment (by wellmadedigital):

 We had this same issue and stumbled on this:

 "The site’s wp-config.php file needs to be updated with a
 $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] definition pointing at the main site URL
 (example.com in the example we’ve been considering)." Source:

 Adding `$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = 'yoursite.com';` to our ProxyPass settings
 in wp-config resolved it.

 As an example:

 Site exists at subdomain.yoursite.com. Proxied to

 Added to wp-config to make this work and resolve the Wordpress Admin URL
 issues (pagination, editing users, etc.):

 # ProxyPass Settings
 # DO NOT REMOVE: overriding the following variables is
 # required to ensure that any request /journal/* is handled
 $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = '/subdomain' . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
 $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] = '/subdomain' . $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'];
 $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = '/subdomain' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
 $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = 'www.yoursite.com';

 I still agree with the OP that this feels like a core bug, but I wanted to
 throw this out there as an alternative solution that doesn't require core
