So, is this org-mode-jumps-to-the-first-header-line a bug or a
feature? Is there a standard workaround?

Org-mode repositions the curser when it changes the visibility in a buffer, to make sure that the screen is used when you switch to overview mode, for example.

The change you see is because when switching to org-mode, the default setting is to hide everything except for top-level headlines. So visibility is changed when you enter org-mode, and consequently the cursor moves.

In your case, changeing the visibility is as unwanted as moving the cursor. You can turn this off globally with

(setq org-startup-folded nil)

Or turn it off for just this buffer by adding this line to the file:

#+STARTUP: showall

If you generally dislike the cursor motion after visibility change, you can also do

(setq org-cycle-hook nil)

Hope this helps.
