Correct.

That's a business function, and a lot of people don't need or want it.  If you want to implement it, you can.  You'll need to find/write code to do it - try the automation add-on or the Script Runner.

You can do it inserting JIRA Workflow Toolbox's post-function "Copy a parsed text to a field" into transition to "In Progress" status in sub-task's workflow with the following configuration:

Boolean expression is:

%{00042} != "In Progress"

where %{00042} is field code of Parent's issue status.

 

Once configured, transition to "In Progress" status will look like this:
