[Interest] QWindows and objectNames

I've got an application (Qt 5.14.2 on Windows) with a MainWindow class 
derived from QWidget and with the flag Qt::Window set. In the MainWindow 
constructor the objectName is set to "myMainWindow". When iterating over 
all application windows using QGuiApplication::allWindows() (there is 
just one) and printing out out their objectNames I get 
"myMainWindowWindow" (i.e. an additional "Window" added to the 
objectName) for my main window.

Is this expected behaviour or a bug? (IMHO it's the latter one, but I 
might have missed something here).

Kind regards,
