Is my Joystick Unit Faulty?

I bought a Joystick Unit several months ago and didn't use it until recently. I found that it will stick and lock at the end the each direction without coming back to the center. Is it normal? My other joysticks (not from M5Stack) don't act like this. So I guess this is faulty, or others have the same problem?

If I compact it to mine, this is normal.
One point to note with the joystick is to make sure it is entered before running code.
@ajb2k3 Thanks a lot for your confirmation and notes.
I was expecting that the joystick will bounce back to the center, even after it reaches at the end of each direction. But it seems that this is what M5Stack intended to do so.
I asked M5Stack support, their answer is:
The ‘stuck’ design is the original function of the joystick, which we called 'self-clock'. For the purpose of keeping the joystick in one direction continuously, without manual operation.
