I just reviewed the same post in both First Posts and Late Answers.

Does this happen to any late answer posted by a new user?

    $\begingroup$ Yes, all late answers go into the review queue, and all first posts go into the first post queue. It is theoretically possible for a single post to be a user's first post, be a late answer, be marked as low quality, AND have a suggested edit on it at the same time. $\endgroup$

Yes, this is by design.

Every time a new user (0 posts) makes their first post here, it goes into the First Posts review queue.

Every time a low-rep user (<50 rep) answers an old post, it goes into the Late Answers review queue.

The rest is a matter of Venn diagrams and non-empty intersections.
