It looks to me as if the winds-aloft in the cross-section view of the map (on the top) indicate only head and tail wind, but not the actual wind direction.

That is correct, and by design. This way you can quickly see if flying higher or lower reduces the headwind (or increases tailwind) to save fuel.
