Hm, are you sure about that? I mean, yeah, in the V1 endgame they are
on the doormat. But I looked at the script, and checked the coordinates
the actors are placed at; they are exactly the same coordinates as for
the V1 version (the scripts in question are very similar); but the graphics
have different dimensions, so those coordinates once translate to
standing on the doormat, and once to standing next to it.

If you can confirm that the original engine indeed put them on the
doormat, then we'll have to unravel a nice big mystery, I am afraid :-)

Pending confirmation that this is actually a bug (i.e. whether
the original engine actually behaved differently).

Cleaning up:

It has been more than 8 years since this bug was submitted. There hasn't been any feedback on this at all, and since fingolfin mentioned that the game scripts behave correctly in that scene, we end up that this is a bug in the original. Closing as "Also occurs in the original - won't fix"
