This is not a bug.

The 'PARSER' nargs choice is an implementation detail as a way to handle subparsers. The parser needs to know that the first value should be handled, but everything that follows will be handled by the subparser.

By using a subparser, you're effectively using 'PARSER', but it wouldn't make sense to allow 'PARSER' to be set directly as it only makes sense when used in conjunction with a subparser.
