Yes, I think so, but this is nothing to worry currently.  :-)

The only standard Type 1 font I've access to is Courier*.pfb (in
TeXLive), and the AFM file I'm using (from TeXLive too) is completely
incorrect!  If you run t1disasm on the files you can easily see that,
for example, `zdotaccent' is in the PFBs but missing in the AFMs.  It
also contains a `zcaron' glyph that is marked as `CC' in the AFM.

It seems that the AFM files describe some special stripped-down
versions of the standard fonts.  Very strange.  I hope that Ken Lunde
(or someone else from Adobe) can shed some light on this topic.
