Wrong area in composer with enabled OTF

Geometry functions "$area", "$perimeter" and probably others always return values in layer map units even if OTF is enabled and project units are different. In same time this functions in Field calculator returns correct result using units of the destination CRS.

To reproduce:
  1. load attached project (layer used EPSG:4326, OTF to EPSG:3857 enabled)
  2. enable editing and calculate features area using Field calculator
  3. now open composer "Test_area"
  4. enable atlas preview and navigate on features
  5. areas are in degrees instead of meters

Tested on master and 2.2.0
