Clicking any Challenge image works

I was just testing the captcha challenge and, as per several tests, clicking any images works. Is this supposed to happen? Maybe it’s simply deciding that my behaviour is human after all and thus doesn’t care what images are chosen? But doesn’t this defeat the entire purpose?

Tested on my PC and mobile phone. Random images selected, access granted.

By my understanding, hCaptcha sometimes has new images that don’t have a lot of training data, so when that happens they’ll use the first few hundred or thousand solves [by known humans] to train “correct” answers for said data before rejecting anyone’s answers.
