proxy_cache_background_update ignores regular expression match when updating

Hello,
I'm running into an issue where a proxied location with a regular
expression match does not correctly update the cache when using
proxy_cache_background_update. The update request to the backend seems
to be missing the captured parameters from the regex. I've created a
small test case that demonstrates this in nginx 1.15.7. Hopefully I'm
not missing anything, I checked the docs and didn't seem to find
anything that would explain this behavior.

Configuration:

proxy_cache_path /tmp keys_zone=test:1m max_size=1g inactive=1h
use_temp_path=off;

server {
listen 127.0.0.1:8010;
root /tmp/nginx;
}

server {
listen 127.0.0.1:8011;

location ~ /test/(regular|expression)$ {
proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8010/test/$1;
proxy_cache test;
proxy_cache_background_update on;
proxy_cache_use_stale updating;
proxy_cache_valid 10s;
}
}

Initial testing with proxy_cache_background_update off. Log excerpts
show requests to both servers.

First request (one to frontend, one to backend as expected):
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:42:31 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.0" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:42:31 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

Second request (served from frontend cache, all good):
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:42:35 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

Third request (cache expired, so a new request to backend, also good):
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:43:14 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.0" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:43:14 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

After setting proxy_cache_background_update on, every request tries to
do a background update with the wrong URL once the content is expired.
The stale content is still served in the meantime.
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:01 +0000] "GET /test/ HTTP/1.0" 403
153 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:01 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:15 +0000] "GET /test/ HTTP/1.0" 403
153 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:15 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:17 +0000] "GET /test/ HTTP/1.0" 403
153 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:17 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:19 +0000] "GET /test/ HTTP/1.0" 403
153 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:19 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:21 +0000] "GET /test/ HTTP/1.0" 403
153 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Dec/2018:17:44:21 +0000] "GET /test/regular
HTTP/1.1" 200 8 "-" "curl/7.52.1" "-"

Is this a bug or am I misunderstanding how this is supposed to work?
