Re: access(2) using effective uid instead of real one?

According to man and posix, access(2) uses the real user UID instead
of the effective one. However it looks like the functions doing the
checking (ufs_access, vop_helper_access) use the effective uid and I
can't find anywhere where the effective uid passed to these functions
would be changed for the real one (as fbsd does).
I also wrote a small program that confirms this.
Assuming I'm not missing something, Is it intentional or a bug?
I'd say it is a bug.
