Adding replicas during forcemerge - is this supposed to happen?

Hello nice people of Elasticsearch.

Recently I accidentally upped the number of replicas from 0 to 1 during a forcemerge.

End result: Replica got created from non-merged primary and stayed unmerged.

Is this supposed to happen?
How do I synchronize the replica to the forcemerged primary?
