That looks like the normal Core behavior when the homepage is setup to display a page. Seems like this should be a Core ticket instead?

The canonical on this page seems to be confusing things further - it is pointing to the current page without the "/page/" segment. So e.g. the canonical on https://central.wordcamp.org/page/5/ is https://central.wordcamp.org/5/.

Due to WordPress's redirect guessing, https://central.wordcamp.org/5/ is redirecting the the "5-reasons-you-should-attend-wordcamp-nyc" post, due the the presence of the "5" in the page title.

I don't know if this is likely to be making matters worse from an SEO perspective?

I have opened a core ticket to address the faulty canonical URL which is being produced on central.wordcamp.org: #wp49220
