Hello. Sorry, what do you mean by mirror 2 brushes? Do you mean when you paint on one side of the object your brush strokes show up on the other side while you’re painting with a mirror modifier on the object? If so, that’s not a bug that’s just the mirror modifier doing its job.

When you have a mirror modifier applied to an object it’s also mirroring that object’s UV map. If you started painting on the object with the mirror modifier on it, then only half of a UV map is actually created so even if you apply that mirror modifier, you’ll still only be painting on half of a UV map that just mirrors itself onto the object. You’ll want to apply any mirror modifier before you start painting.
