This can be due to a fault with a starter/crank relay as most models use.I have seen some of these relays fail in the past before needing replaced to correct faults like this.The starter ignition feed circuit needs tested to see if this is a relay at fault needing replaced as I agree you shouldnt see voltage at the starter until the key is turned to the crank/starting position.

Yes this is correct.The resistance contacts can be worn or shorted causing this fault here.I have seen the contacts in the relay cause issues like this here with the relay needing replaced to correct this fault.
Unfortunately my info isnt showing me the exact diagram on this here.
