...only because you're mis-interpreting the convention.  :-)

Any link of the form [[target|text]] says to use "text" for the link
text regardless of how the target is specified, and regardless of
the page's existence.  Thus

    [[Group.PageName | some page]]
    [[Group/PageName | some page]]

both display with "some page" as the text of the link.  For a link like

    [[Group.PageName |+]]

the "+" says to use the title of the page as the link text.  
Even if Group.PageName doesn't exist its title is still "PageName",
so that is what is used as the link text.

We can probably change this as a local customization, but from
my perspective this use of "+" as link text is entirely consistent.
