Is this a known bug?

It's not a bug, it's a feature

German torpedoes were notoriously faulty in beginning of the war and one of the problems, which I think is modeled in TWoS, was that they sometimes ran 2-3 meters deeper than set. This doesn't always happen of course, but I had similar situations testing my coastal merchants (2-3 meters draft) - about one in three torpedoes set to 1 meter missed them and went below.

Another possible problem is if you use impact detonator, torpedo has to hit more or less at right angle. If it's a glancing hit on rounded bottom of the ship, it may just bounce off without exploding.
