I've never heard of that. There are quite a few states that recognize other states permits but only for residents of the other state.
For example (example only!), as a New Yorker, I can get a Florida permit which is recognized in PA for Florida residents only. So, I can carry in FL, but not PA because I'm not a resident.
I don't know why any state would issue permits just so a nonresident could carry in other states but not the issuing state. What would be the benefit for the state?

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
