Yes, this should be expected as can easily be verified by doing:

In[3]:= Complement[$ExportFormats, $ImportFormats]


Similarly, you can find formats that can be imported but not
exported with:

In[4]:= Complement[$ImportFormats, $ExportFormats]

Out[4]= {ApacheLog,CDED,CUR,DBF,Directory,EDF,GTOPO30,ICO,LaTeX,MBOX,\

Note, this was done on

In[5]:= $Version

Out[5]= 6.0 for Mac OS X PowerPC (32-bit) (May 21, 2008)

The results for other versions or other platforms will almost
certainly be different.
