 Really, this is a bug.

 The patch seems OK, but I'm not sure about it. A few issues:
  * How well will that query work when there are a lot of post IDs? It's
 possible that you could be exporting tens of thousands of post IDs of a
 single type. The IN would get too long at some point.
  * Unless my memory is failing me, featured images aren't necessarily
 attached to posts. We'd need to check each post's metadata and append the
 post to the posts to export if it is missing.
