Correct. The TSVN displays the status that the subversion library
returns, which is that the file is 'normal'. Mixed revisions are
perfectly normal within a working copy. The fact that you have
manually backdated to an earlier revision is not stored in the working
copy data.

As you will note in the TSVN docs, we don't recommend updating
individual files to an old revision for this very reason.
