Legend symbol has indeed never worked with data defined symbology. I feel it's not a bug but rather a lack in implementation.
IMO, there's an easy low cost implementation to dramatically improve behavior for the short term: have legend symbol revert to non data defined values when drawing. ie, if we have a data defined color fill, instead of showing a black color, it picks up the color defined in symbol fill color.
Same goes for size values, border colors, etc.
That would at least prevent rendering legend symbol useless, as is the case atm.
