That is by design and has been like that in FPC since the beginning. If you compile in TP or Delphi mode, you will also get a warning about this:

tt6.pp(5,5) Warning: lo/hi(dword/qword) returns the upper/lower word/dword
tt6.pp(6,5) Warning: lo/hi(dword/qword) returns the upper/lower word/dword

It's also documented at
