This is not a bug; mapfile behaves as documented. It reads input until it encounters a delimiter, then returns.

If you're worried about this situation, follow the call to mapfile with a call to read to consume any remaining input on the line, or use newline as the delimiter and split the line yourself.

The following command output is displayed when the ‘mapfile -n array’ command is executed:
    [root@29 ~]# mapfile -d ';' -n 2 array
    [root@29 ~]# ls
    0402             bash       Downloads             openEuler 
    rpmbuild               Videos
    1070             Desktop    initial-setup-ks.cfg  os_info   
    anaconda-ks.cfg  Documents  Music  
The ls command is automatically executed.

After fix:
    [root@29 bash]# mapfile -d ';' -n 2 array
    [root@29 bash]# echo ${array[@]}
    1; 2;
    [root@29 bash]#
ls command is mot executed,and is also not in array
