Should the steering wheel lock on an E90?

Is the steering wheel on a 335i supposed to lock when you turn off the ignition? It doesn't on mine, but it does on every car I've ever had or driven (though never checked it on another 335i). Even with the ignition off, there's some rotational play in the wheel, in both directions. This isn't a problem, per se, but it's just odd, no?

I think they removed the electronic steering wheel lock on later models.
