You can switch to the four modes with the default keys:
mod-h for horizontal
mod-v for vertical
mod-f for floating
mod-m for monocle

Pressing one of these again sends you back to the mode you were just at.
I find this invaluable as occasionally I move into floating mode and
dont want to be there, so I merely have to hit mod-f again and I'm back
to wherever I was (generally tilev). It's also good if you toggle quite
a bit.

So in short, yes, it's the intended behaviour.
