Inconsistence on file operation when the name already exists with exe extension

On an empty dir:

touch file.exetouch file.imgtouch file doesn't create the corresponding file.
touch helppcp helpp file
cp: can't create regular file «file»: File exists
On rm file it removes the file.exe instead of saying file not found.
Is this behavior intended? This is not unix like, the filename should be preserved as is.
