Yes, that's actually just the air pressure changing from the internals moving. If that hole weren't there the piston would be impeded because it would be trying to move in an air-tight space. As long as you only feel it when the reg cycles then it's perfectly normal.

If it's leaking constantly, relube the piston oring.

What both guys said above, if it starts releasing air without shooting, then you've got an issue. Don't cover the hole with tape or whatever other people do. If the feeling of the air bothers you wear gloves and you'll never notice it.
