Hello :)

You are seeing the intended behavior. This is documented at:

cPAddon - WordPress

If you use cPAddon to install WordPress, you must specify a subdirectory on the Install screen. If you wish to install WordPress into your document root, install WordPress manually without the assistance of cPAddon. A WordPress installation in the document root may cause conflicts with any other non-WordPress content in that account due to how the .htaccess file behaves. Also, WordPress installed in the document root prevents multiple installations of WordPress in an account because of these .htaccess conflicts.

Thank you.
