Yes. It is. The question is how long has this been a problem ? If its been there for a while then we probably need to address it. In looking at my local archives I see that my first archive where it starts with 0001 occurred in April archives. (The total archive was rebuilt May 12 for the April list I am looking at.) That probably means the change was a recent one. All earlier archives have a 000.html start.
