Normal. Puppies will rehearse all adult behaviours regardless of whether it has any adult meaning.

does this mean he will still have this behavior as an adult?

I think for the most part it's something they grow out of (at least if they are neutered). Our Golden Retriever did it for quite awhile but they act like puppies for about three years. I might be wrong but both Zeus and Max tended to do it when they got overexcited. Max does still does it now and then (he's 8 months) but he's easily redirected. Zeus (retriever) was not that easy to redirect and he did it for a couple of years - more to people than inanimate objects. He grew out of it eventually though.
