Not a bug, just a quirk of how the ratings handle situations where a player doesn't leave a rating in some categories.
This image should help explain how the averages are calculated.

As far as the effect on their overall average is concerned, yes. It doesn't have any effect on their averages for the categories you leave empty.

It only has a negative effect if the rating in the other category(s) are below that player's average. IE: If you rate a player 5 in one category and leave the other two empty then it affects their overall rating in the same way as leaving all 5s would have.
