This is not a bug, the terminology here is just a bit misleading. Virt manager
can connect to multiple hypervisors at the same time, with each hypervisor
listed as a tree entry and its VMs as the entries children. Since you may not
want an active connection to each hypervisor, polling for resources/taking up
bandwidth, you can connect or disconnect from each hypervisor indivdually. On
start up all connections are disconnected, which is what you are seeing. Double
click the connection and it will connect, listing your VMs.

Closing as NOTABUG.
