Panasonic 100-400 lock ring

I got my 100-400 a couple of days ago and started testing it it.  I thought the zoom was stiff but usable.  After about an hour I realized the lock ring was set to lock, oops.

I expected the lock ring to lock the zoom, not just make it stiffer.  Is this normal?

The lock is stiff enough to prevent zoom creep so it serves the intended purpose but without a lot of margin.
