It could easily be proper. The temp sensor indication is mapped. It reads the last reading usually after a restart and has some degree of delays.

One of the main purposes is to avoid reading the radiator temp on a car that has only been off for a small period. The sensor is in the bumper and is heated by the radiator untill moving.
