History on a Set of images displays on last modified

It appears that Photoshop (CS4-CC) is saving all of the history for a set of RAW images into the last image history in the set. I'm not sure if this is expected behavior, or if there is a problem with how History is displayed. When a user opens the history of a .tif created from the RAW, the history will not display unless the user knows to select the last image of the set. This is very confusing for the user, as they might not know the last image in the set and there is no other information to tell the user about this protocol.

1. Open three RAW images (in this case .nef) in Photoshop.
2. Select the White Balance Tool (eye dropper) and balance each image in the Workbench window.
3. Click Select All button.
4. Click Open Images (wait for all images to open).
5. On each image, hit Ctrl-l (to adjust the levels on the photo): - Click Auto (in Levels) - Click OK
6. Save as a .TIF file on all files. (TIFF Options 'None' and click OK)
7. Close all images after saving .tifs.
8. Open each of these images' .tif and look at the History (Alt-Shift-Ctrl-I).
9. Note that the first two .tif Histories do not contain the raw data, but the last one does. It appears that the history of the RAW images modified in a set is saved on the last image history, and not displayed on the other images' History.
10. Also, the order in which the edits and saves were made, and the order in which the .tifs are opened does not seem to matter, as the last .tifs' History contains the edits made to all of the RAW images.
