That’s very surprising, given that they have the same one-line code.  Please file that bug.

Can you report that too, if there is no existing bug?  (Maybe it’s #10945 or another one.)

Why would you think it creates an MSI?  bdist_wininst is not bdist_msi.

Is it a problem?  In distutils too, bdist_msi is not registered in command.__init__, as it can’t run on non-Windows, but the bdist command knows that it exists and can run it.  IOW, there are two registries of bdist commands: in command.__init__, which is used by --help-commands and others, and in bdist.  In distutils, calling bdist --formats=msi or directly bdist_msi works (on Windows); if it doesn’t work with packaging, this is another bug to report.
