I just noticed that when I check on "only selected" the bug doesn't occour.

Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to 50.

I've noticed that this also happens in 2.79 for me. So I'm unsure if this is intended or not.

I don't think it happens exactly like this in 2.79. There is selection syncing when you click on the channels, but not when you click on the keyframes as far as I can tell.

Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) changed the subtype of this task from "Report" to "Bug".

I can confirm the bug.
It worked in blender 2.79

@Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) please remember to add the - it worked in 2.79 information in the original bug description. A fully triaged report should have all the required information to fix it in said description.

The selection sync between bones and dope sheet is a known weak area of Blender, so I'm closing this as a known issue. Don't worry, I've added this to my list of weak areas of the animation system so that it's not forgotten.
