No points for dispersed units?

If a unit, for example a chariot, can't rout (but I think it is break off after melee) they disperse (disappear) but the opponent doesn't get any break points. Is it a feature or a bug?

This is working as designed. Scythed chariots will disperse if they don't immediately break the enemy within impact and one melee round I believe. They are the only unit that this applies to.

Yes. Scythed chariots are expendable and do not count towards rout %. All other dispersed units do.

They’re like ancient cruise missiles

Out of curiosity, why does this happen? Were they used as dispensable units? (No idea)

Both historically and technically. Chariots are really stupid, for reasons that ancient historians explained better than I could here. There was literally no reason you wouldn't have been better off putting guys with sabers on back of the horses that are being used to pull the chariot.
Rather than cruise missiles, they're more like heavily armored cavalry after the invention of rifles.
In the 1000s BC they were probably more useful, but that's because everyone didn't have cavalry and drilled infantry then (even the chariots were pulled by wild asses).
