I ran into this issue and was able to get more details. I tested this on both 2.4.5p1 and 21.05 with the following set:
  1. NAT Reflection mode for port forwards
  2. Enable NAT Reflection for 1:1 NAT
  3. Enable automatic outbound NAT for Reflection
  4. Port forward rule on WAN
  5. 1:1 rule on WAN

This results in the following rules:
igb0 = WAN; igb1 = LAN1; igb2 = LAN2

binat on igb0 from 10.1.1.4 to any -> 192.0.2.2
[...]
# NAT Inbound Redirects
rdr on igb0 inet proto { tcp udp } from any to 177.231.47.7 port 8080 -> 10.1.1.3
# Reflection redirect
rdr on { igb1 igb2 } inet proto { tcp udp } from any to 192.0.2.3 port 80 -> 10.1.1.3
# Reflection redirects and NAT for 1:1 mappings
rdr on { igb1 igb2 } from any to 192.0.2.2 -> 10.1.1.4 bitmask
no nat on igb1 from (igb1) to 10.1.1.4
nat on igb1 from 10.1.1.0/24 to 10.1.1.4 -> 10.1.1.1 port 1024:65535

Here, the nat rule should instead be the following to address traffic from other subnets:

nat on igb1 from { 10.1.1.0/24 10.2.2.0/24 } to 10.1.1.4 -> 10.1.1.1 port 1024:65535

And an additional nat rule should be added for the port forward:

nat on igb1 from { 10.1.1.0/24 10.2.2.0/24 } to 10.1.1.3 -> 10.1.1.1 port 1024:65535

Without these additional rules, accessing the public IP results in asymmetric routing.

This looks to be fixed in 2.6/22.01 without this PR.
Outbound NAT rules are added as expected when NAT reflection is in PureNAT mode and 'Enable automatic outbound NAT for Reflection' is set:

# NAT Inbound Redirects
rdr on vtnet0 inet proto tcp from any to 172.21.16.22 port 222 -> 192.168.191.10 port 22
# Reflection redirect
rdr on { vtnet1 openvpn WireGuard } inet proto tcp from any to 172.21.16.22 port 222 -> 192.168.191.10 port 22
no nat on vtnet1 proto tcp from (vtnet1) to 192.168.191.10 port 22
nat on vtnet1 proto tcp from 192.168.191.0/24 to 192.168.191.10 port 22 -> 192.168.191.1 port 1024:65535
