No, that's not wrong. The /root directory should be mode 755, which means anyone can chdir to it, or list the contents. In a freshly installed system there isn't anything in that directory where disclosure of file contents would be greatly deleterious to security. The important thing is that no-one other than root can *write* to that directory.
