I'm noticing this as well. I tried changing the size in the layouts element of the project file, but can't find those dimensions or page size anywhere. checked on both windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.

This is the behaviour that comes with QPageSetupDialog and it is the same also in other applications using QPageSetupDialog (e.g. kate). Don't know why it behaves like that, but it is not a QGIS bug. I'm suggesting to close this ticket.

Also worth noting that the correct way to set the actual size for the layout page is to right-click the page and select page properties. The Page Setup command applies only to printing pages.
