It is intentional because this is a session restore and we believe a lot of users will want to see the content they were seeing before exiting Safari. It also requires less resources (network & cpu) to load from cache. Also, if the user want to refresh the content, that's what the reload button is for.

I am not aware of any mechanism to avoid this although I am sure somebody could write JavaScript to reload the page under the right circumstances. Sure, no-store will also avoid this behavior because you disable caching altogether.
