Please do let me know if you think the behavior for this has changed. We played through a lot of the Holodeck missions before we unlocked the Foundry (before we even put S7 on Holodeck), and we didn't encounter any we couldn't complete because of this.
I think the relative obscurity of the feature means few have used it. (I thought everyone knew, but I guess not.) Most will just place a planet and than place their own reach marker. If you want to take a look, the 4th map of my mission, "In the Shadow of MIDAS, Part 1" uses the planet as the target of a reach marker objective. The objective shows on the mini-map but you can see it is now significantly smaller than the planet.

It's doesn't look to serious, just looks like a number got changed somewhere.
