This is expected behavior. In typical agile you do not estimate Sub-Tasks with Story Points, you estimate Stories with Story Points. JIRA Software enforces this.

If you want you could customize the field to perform this but this again would be custom.

To further the discussion, I'll have you know that Time Estimates, Remaining Time, and Time Spent do aggregate on the Story. Time does roll up, story points do not.
