In that case, this behavior is expected. Email is one of the fields which is
considered unique for a person and thus causes contacts to be merged. I
discussed that with upstream folks developers when proposing to use emails like
that, and our conclusion was that the case where two different individuals
share the same email account is rare. Do you have that in your address book(s)?

Not using the email addresses during merging has the downside that very little
reliably properties for merging are left (essentially only instant messaging
handles), which essentially prevents any kind of merging. Heuristics relying on
soft properties (like "name is similar enough") are currently not used.

In your example, the emails are random numbers. That's not realistic. Before
changing the current behavior, we need more representative test cases and a
definition of the expected behavior.
