Steps to reproduce:

PS: I tried pasting the same in the Visual Studio Code editor, and it pasted the text properly.

OS Version: Windows 10

I tested and replicated it on the following two browsers:

  • Chrome: Version 77.0.3865.90 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • Edge: Microsoft Edge 42.17134.1.0

As a simple workaround, press CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste, which will paste the clipboard contents as plain text. (Can also right click the editor and choose "Paste as plain text".)

VSCode editor, and other editors that don't accept images, are reading it as plain text always, but since Stack Exchange editor does accept images, it can't really know what you want to paste.

If you paste it into image editor, you'll also get the text as image. All in all, that's not SE fault. The bug, if there is any, is in OneNote itself, which should not put image inside the clipboard when you copy only text.
