I think it is a bug, I see the same stupid reports that tell me that every single page of my site is in position 1.0 and I wonder 1.0 of what? It certainly is not in position 1.0 of anything I can find.
I thought this was a brand new bug but I just went back and looked at my saved file of September's numbers. I never noticed before that all those obscure pages at the bottom-- the ones that might show up in two searches during the whole month-- all claim to be #1. Total, about 2/3 of the site. Oh, come on. If those numbers are from personalized searches then I have to say g### isn't doing a very good job of it because I don't see a fat lot of "&cd=1" in my logs.
If I look at the top of the list-- sorting by impressions-- a couple of them are bona fide 1.0. But even those are fishy. In all possible searches that ever bring up such-and-such page, it's always at #1? Nuh-uh. Not even wikipedia can say that. Besides, I see those pages in logs. And they're not always #1.
