Should there ever be water in drip pan of refrigerator?

Should there ever be water in drip pan of refrigerator?

Have side by side Whirlpool. Freezer on left. Has ice make.
There is a drip pan at bottom of freezer side.

Noticed today (never looked before) there was some water in the catch pan. I would say about 8 ounces at most.

Not sure if this is normal perhaps due to a defrost cycle or something (frost free refrigerator about 7 years old) and it will evaporate or if this is something to watch out for.

Ice maker working fine. Water dispenser working fine.
Never had a problem with it thus far.

Thanks in advance
Peter

Model ED5FTGXKQ00
