Yes, that is normal. The condenser line runs around the door seals to keep them warm and pliable to ensure a good seal, not to worry! :)

The lines run through the cabinet I mean, where the seals contact the cabinet...

Tnx. During the last power outage I was running a couple of fridges off my Prius. I was worried about the extra power draw.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Anytime the compressor runs, that area will be warm. If it gets really hot, that would indicate an issue with the condenser fan but warm is normal.
