Default Horton Fan Status with Engine Off

What is the normal status of the Horton fan when the engine is off (override switch off too)? Sometimes my fan freewheels when the engine is off, other times it is locked-up with the engine off. When I say locked-up, I mean I can remove the fan stud nuts without having to block the fan. Other times I have had to block the fan to prevent it from rotating to undo the stud nuts. Is this normal operation or does something need fixing?

My fan defaults to lock-up when the ignition switch is turned off and the air system is full.

Crit has the answer, but as the air pressure leaks down in the off mode it will eventually free wheel
