What bumpmapping does is to perturb the normal vectors of a poygon so as to give it the appearance of bumpiness, while not actually making the underlying geometry any more complex -- it gives the illusion of a polygon that is not flat made out of one that actually is.
Flat shading, on the other hand, means that the normals of a particular polygon are constant throughout. Flat shading and bumpmapping cannot possibly be done on the same polygon, considering bumpmapping works by perturbing normals (in theory anyway).

I don't get how it's surprising
