Loose Flange at Header/Xpipe? Normal?

Just removed the stock xpipe on my car and noticed the flange on the driver side header was able to freely spin around. I think what's keeping the flange from falling off the header is because it is resting on the exhaust gasket. I find this weird. Isn't this flange supposed to be welded (fixed) to the header?

I haven't attempted to remove it or really inspect it. But the passenger side didn't move like this. Anyone experience the same thing? Thanks in advance.
