I was able to reproduce this bug also on Fedora 23 with anaconda 23.19.10-1
We do not attempt to perform any automatic conversion of manually-created layouts, which is what you seem to expect.
If you use manual storage configuration and then change your mind about encryption you have to specify encryption for each device you want to encrypt in the custom storage spoke. There is no way we could reliably guess which devices you want to encrypt.
