this is correct and I believe this is exactly how GEDA works. Only
because you press J that does not mean that the use wants to place a
junction where the cursor is. A second click should be need to place
the Junction.

I really would like people in charge of the KiCad development to
reconsider this point.

Why would you change that? It is clearly faster to place a junction by pressing J than having to switch to the junction tool (J) and then click. The wire tool is even more important to be short cut.
