I'm not sure it's a bug, because the problem is a bit complex.

I am in a case where I have to initialize a field, in reality by recovering a value in another layer that contains the entered point, but for the example just by assignment in a form open function

from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QDialogButtonBox, QLineEdit
def my_form_open(dialog, layer, feature):

Another field (ref) is defined as a relational value and uses a filter for this purpose
id" = current_value("id')

when the form is initialized, the id value is not recovered by the current_value() function. All layer values are displayed instead of being filtered.
it is necessary to retype the value in the field so that the field 'ref' is filtered

In the same case, the formValuerelation plugin worked correctly with QGIS 2.

attached two layers gpkg and a project for testing
