question about position of mount contacts

Are all of the contacts on the body mount of my K5iis supposed to be raised? One of them appears to be in a down pressed position....

The "A" contact is recessed. Many lenses having the "A" contacts have a pin at the "A" position that physically raises and lowers depending on the position of the aperture ring (at "A" position or not).
