Yes, this is perfectly normal. It's Honda's design. Here's Honda's official explanation.

Grade Logic Control
The Accord automatic transmission features Honda's Grade Logic Control system. This system differs from other computer-controlled shift programming because it can detect vehicle driving situations and then set appropriate shift points for the car. This feature avoids gear hunting on climbs and descents, and downshifts when appropriate for added engine braking.
