Default '16 STI - OEM Up Pipe Flexible?

Kind of a noob question... Does the OEM up pipe have a built in flex coupler?

Background - Today I removed my EL header to have it thermal coated. After I removed the header I bumped the bottom of the OEM up pipe and it moved a bit. Seems there is about 1/4 in of movement if I push/pull gently sideways. All bolts on top are tight and there are no signs of soot. No CELs, boost issues, or exhaust leak noise, so I don't think it is cracked. Is a slight amount of movement normal?
