This is normal I have Sadhana #51 and yes the circuit is such that the resistors on each different position of the varitone cause the volume pots of the two p'ups to interact differently.
Personally I've been itching to rewire mine to have stacking volume/tone pots on each pickup, in addition to the varitone but maybe with some tweaking there as well, to give each position sort of a more pronounced flavor. Alas I'm not an electronics whiz and have no idea where to begin, especially with the varitone since it's passive wiring. It'd be really cool if there was like a passive octaver circuit or something extra cool for one or two notches.
