This is surely semantics ....  In the sense that Ticks are printed, there is
no bug.  However, since the options for Ticks (which is what the FrameTicks
ends up using) include specifications for a label, then it is clearly a bug.

Apparently, a user-defined Ticks function works just fine, so you can use

FrameTicks->{None, Automatic, myTicks, None}

However, rather than define myTicks, I'd suggest using Mark Caprio's
CustomTicks package (
which makes it as easy as 

Plot[x^2, {x, -2, 2}, FrameTicks -> {None, Automatic, LinTicks[-2, 2],
