This just sounds like an extreme example in which traffic conditions make the problem that is present at all intersections where the bike lane stripe is painted up to the intersection (without a right only lane and a bl to the left of that) much more obvious.

But the problem is present at any intersection where the bike lane intended for through bike traiffc is striped to the right of a lane that allows right turning traffic, a situation which can be found at almost any intersection of any bike laned road (except for those with right only lanes where the bl goes to the left of it), including any midblock intersection with a driveway, alley or commercial entrance along a road with a bike lane.
