Repository permissions for GitHub App Fake User

GitHub Apps get a user with username that looks like {APP_NAME}[bot]. It seems GitHub API in other places doesn't respect such usernames. For example, I'm trying to get permissions for a user bors[bot] of bors app, I'm using this endpoint which uses username. It returns "none" permissions but should return "write" since the app has write access to the repository.
 
I think all endpoints that accept username should respect these bot usernames. Just wanted to let you know about that confusions and ask your opinion if it's really a bug or we should work on a workaround somehow.
