[An aside: Setting org-agenda-entry-types to '(:timestamp :sexp) is
faster than using an org-agenda-skip-function here.]

I can confirm this. 

Moreover, I find that my custom settings for org-agenda-entry-types are
ignored and org-agenda-span are discarded when jumping to a date. The
following custom command displays a weekly calendar.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
	("cc" "Calendar" agenda ""
	 ((org-agenda-span 'week)
	  (org-agenda-start-on-weekday 0)		; start on Sunday
	  (org-agenda-time-grid nil)
	  (org-agenda-prefix-format " %-12:t ")
	  (org-deadline-warning-days 0)
	  (org-agenda-include-all-todo nil)
	  (org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all t)
	  (org-agenda-filter-preset '("-nocal1"))
	  (org-agenda-hide-tags-regexp ".*")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

My default org-agenda-span is 'day.

If I jump to Thursday, I get a standard one-day agenda view, which
includes all the org-agenda-entry-types (deadline, schedule, etc.). 

If I then refresh the agenda view, the deadline and schedule items
disappear, but the agenda remains limited to the default span (day)
instead of the custom span (week).

> What I would find logical is to keep this setting active for the jump.

A quick check of the git history reveals that org-agenda-goto-date has
*always* been rather basic. It simply calls org-agenda-list for the date
in question. Unlike org-agenda-goto-today, it pays no attention to the
local settings for the current agenda.
