Yes....part of the normal maintenance is to take the plunger out of the carb and clean it and the opening with carb cleaner. I use a Q-tip in the opening to get much of the dirt out. Just go easy when removing the cheapo plastic nut that holds it into the carb, it strips very easily. I have replaced mine twice.
