Is it normal for TB3 dongle to get hot?

Hello everybody

i just purchased a MM M1 and am using the hyperdrive 9-1 dongle to expand my peripherals.  The latter has an aluminum casing to it. It does not have its own power source. I have noticed that it gets quite hot even when nothing is plugged into it. Is that normal?  I thought without a power source it would stay cool. It must be continuously drawing power out of the mini?
