Clear Private Data -> Downloads

Last night I needed to clear cookies and sessions for my Firefox on Android installation. When doing so I included my Download (History), or so I thought. Every file I've downloaded to my phone was (un)surprisingly deleted. Is that the behavior most people would expect? On any other broswer I've used (Chrome, IE, Samsung Internet) clearing Downloads clears only the download history and not the files themselves.

I realize it's my fault for making an assumption but I'm curious to know, am I alone in thinking the result of clearing Downloads should be more evident or obvious?
