Yep. It's routine. Aside from there being some variation among manufacturers (like clothing), tire measurements are given without any weight on the tire. Put a multi-thousand pound vehicle on them and they compress a bit, shortening the distance from the bottom to the top. There's also a bit of an arc across the tire surface width-wise, meaning that peak height is in the middle where you can't really measure to directly. It's all just approximate.
