I've noticed on some vehicles when you put them in park you still get some movement if you rev it, but it doesnt go anywhere. Being in 4Low, any small force is amplified coming from the engine. Idk if its normal, things wern't ment to be in 4low all the time so the designers may not have worried about things like that.
