This is the intended behaviour, and AFAIK there is no way to disable it.

Create a null Snap it to the object vertex. Select both null and object In the viewport activate the mini axis of the null. Snap it to your corner. Done Seems easy enough


Convoluted much?

Better :
- Go to point mode, select all, snap, done.
or
- Press and hold L key, snap axis, release, snap object, done.

An easy way to do this is to be in point mode - then select all (Ctl A) and drag one point - which will then snap to another object vertex.

Both of these techniques are workable.

That's a pity, hope I will get used to it.
