It's like that in the original. The use of the EXIT button is really inconsistently applied.. in general, it only actually exits in "close-up" scenes where you don't see the player. In other scenes, it simply resets back to the walk cursor. Although, there's actually a camp scene later in the game where, in the original, clicking Exit would leave the scene immediately, even if you hadn't gotten some items needed later. Which is a bummer if, like me, you get in the habit of clicking Exit for the walk cursor, puting the game in an unwinnable state. So in ScummVM I put in place a workaround to not let you accidentally leave until you've done everything necessary :)

PS: In case you wonder, yes, it really is that tricky to get out of the area and back into the corridor in the original. From memory, you need to have walked away from the entrance and then return before the game will register you as wanting to exit the area.
