Interesting observation - I have found a similar situation. I commute in temperatures down to -10c and found that although my fingers were fine in winter gloves my thumb was often freezing and numb - I realised that my thumb was resting on the metal clamp of my shifter/brakes. I covered this with a bit of bar tape and this made a huge difference.
