Am I crazy? Windows go down a little when opening the doors right?

So I just got my car back from the shop where they did a re learn for a problem I was having. It fixed the problem but I feel like it may have caused another.

With the doors not having the top part where a window would normally seat into, I could’ve sworn that whenever you opened the door handle, the window would go down ever so slightly to unseal to let the window open freely. Since getting my car back I’ve realized they no longer do that and when I open the door, it feels like it sticks in the seal as it opens.

Do the windows on the 2nd Gen Outback do this partial opening thing when opening and closing the doors or am going crazy? And if they are supposed to do that, does anyone know how to reset them to do that again?

Thanks in advance.

Mine has never done any drop. It isn't sticking either. (so far!) and since you have my car (😆) neither should yours.
I recommend pouring some water over the accused window to see if it is allowing water to get in, so you may know before you get rained on and the interior gets drenched, if you think it is dropping.
Is it all doors or just one?
For something like that, perhaps the hinge or bushings to it can be replaced. Mine doesn't sag, so I never looked. Hinges used to be replaceable in vehicles though.
