so it's bad for the suspension to not drop when the car is raised up?
It just shows a lack of travel. Travel is good. It's not a problem on buttery smooth roads, but those don't actually exist. Even tracks are generally pretty bumpy.

Also, without travel the bumpstops are going to be doing most of the work, and that's harder to control. Uncontrolled suspension motion leads to an unpredictable car.

If you watch the video posted above, you'll see just how much travel is used just cruising down a regular road. Basically, the suspension is there for a reason.
