Yes. That is a sign of a preloaded suspension.

The swaybar shouldn't put any load on your suspension regardless of link length. Can you post a picture of it connected? Does the sway bar move up and down in the bushings as it should?

Now I have to go look at my suspension to see how that's possible. Having never owned a vehicle with a straight axle that mounts the anti-roll bar above the axle center, I am curious.
