I can CONFIRM this behavior based on the reproduction steps from https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=58185#c2 and the reproduction from https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=58185#c3
It seems that Bundle assemblies into native code is not taking account of the PCL's Properties/Resources.resx files.
