It is not even bad design, as the camera checks for a card as soon as the card slot door is closed, even if the camera is turned off. Therefore the camera only has one choice: Switch to the card that is available.

Why is this the only choice when the camera is switched off? Does it need to record anything before being turned on? Why can't it defer the recording media choice till its turned on rather than making it as soon as card door is closed?

Maybe the card check is an expensive or slow operation, so the camera is not doing that during off/on cycles?  I know in the old days, Canon DSLRs takes a while to power up, so it could be just a leftover legacy design?
