Not a Weechat bug. Some terminals (especially vte) simply do not send different key codes for Bksp and Ctrl+Bksp, and [afaik] there is nothing Weechat, as a terminal program, can do about this.

Alt+K then Ctrl+Bksp gives Ctrl+?, same as just Bksp, therefore it is impossible to bind Ctrl+Bksp to something else (e.g. erase-last-word).
