I also checked via JMX and all the write counts are zero. Is the node supposed to receive writes during bootstrap?

As I understand it, yes.

The other funny thing during bootstrap, is that nodetool status shows that the bootsrapping node is Up/Normal (UN), instead of Up/Joining(UJ), is this expected or is it a bug? The bootstrapping node does not even appear in the "nodetool status" of other nodes.

Perhaps this node is not actually bootstrapping because you have configured it as a seed with no other valid seeds listed and so it has started as a cluster of one?
