When zoomed in your DC jack image looks sideways if that’s the case it’s correct with battery power going to the middle lug and as you know board power to the smaller top lug

As Cybercow says it’s important when you also have a battery installed that it disconnects battery power when using an adaptor

Most but not all DC jack sockets these days disconnect the battery via a spring mechanism when you plug your adaptor into the jack

Its easy enough to continuity check to see if it is a switched type with nothing in it both power lugs should have continuity when you plug your adaptor into the DC jack they should have no continuity obviously you don’t have to plug your adaptor into the wall to test
