When i'm working on a PSD and i go save a copy as JPG, all my layer comps suddenly have a ! next to them. Is this behavior intentional or a bug?

I think it's an erroneous alert (PS flattens the images to save a JPEG). You can clear all all warnings to remove the alert. I'll log a bug and see if it's an easy fix.

For what it's worth, you can totally avoid this bug by using File > Export > Export As.  I just checked it and that workflow does NOT set the flag after saving to JPG.

Hope that helps,
