I don't think this is a bug. The generic ListPlot function does not plot
points at the data locations either. In order to get the list to be
plotted with large points at the data locations, I would do the following:

g1 = LogLogListPlot[data,GridLines->Automatic,
   PlotStyle->{PointSize[0.04] },
   DisplayFunction -> Identity ];

g2 = LogLogListPlot[ data, GridLines->Automatic,
   PlotStyle -> {PointSize[0.04] },
   DisplayFunction -> Identity ];

Show[ {g1, g2}, DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction ]
