No, the proxy at each of the ends resolves independently.

It points at the same proxy it was pointing at before.

With bidirectional references the proxy always points back...

No proxies are created during proxy resolution.

It's not entirely clear from your description how many resources are
involved. But here's what I expect. If A is in resource X and B is in
resource Y you'll have loaded A where A.b references a proxy Bp. When
you access A.b, resource Y is loaded, and like for X, B.a references a
proxy Ap; Bp is resolved to B an A.b will reference B, but B.a
references Ap until you access B.a, at which point it resolves to A. If
you're seeing something different, look closely at how many resources
are involved in the resource set. Perhaps there is some inconsistency
in the proxy URIs so that when you access B.a, a third resource is being
loaded. If not, there should be at most two As and two Bs (in each
case, on the "real" object the other a proxy) in the specific scenario
