          Yes this is correct behavior. Create a rectangular extrude, add surfaces on both open sides, knit all the 3 surfaces and then check.

              You can also select to cap the far end for a single direction extrude, which saves a feature.  If you extrude in both directions, you can cap both ends, but then for some reason it will become a solid.  I wish that it would not do that and I wish that I could cap the start end for a single direction extrude.
