did I miss some setting, or is that the way EVFs work in M on this (all) EVF cameras?

I would guess that this isn't just in manual mode. You just haven't noticed it in the other modes, because the camera automaticly adjust exposure.

But in case you are at the end of the cameras capabilities, you would notice in the other modes also. For example if it's very bright outside, and you choose an apperture of 2,8 in Apperture mode, then the camera would choose the fastest shutterspeed possible, but that might not be fast enought, if it's really bright. so the picture would be over exposed, and you would see that up-front in the EVF, and therefor have a chance to change the apperture, before you take the image.
