Yes, but there are conditions where either that sometimes doesn't happen, or it rectifies itself. Can't remember at the moment specifically, but it is common in my games too. Doesn't break anything, just looks odd. Another wonky occurrence to note.... rebels will sometimes ask for aid (units etc), but then it isn't possible to actually gift them (no selection option). Basically it isn't possible to interact diplomatically unless they take over a city and gain full status. Seems like a neat feature though, if it's intended that you can help them when they're "stateless". Try without the 'raging rebels' option, which is on by default in Advanced Custom Startup (near the bottom).
