Polarization filter with rotating lens

In my Nikon D3100 18-55 kit lens, the front end rotates during auto focus. As a result, I observed that my shots with polarization filter (CPL) often looked washed out.

However, when shooting with my Tamron 18-270 lens, its front end does not rotate I get intended result with polarization filter.

Is this normal? Does it mean with rotating end lens I can't use polarization filter or I'm doing something wrong?
