Not really. Writers adhere to the adage that, to make an unbelievable world believable, pay attention to the little things. Readers will accept the most outlandish things if they can accept the small stuff. It just struck me as kind of odd. And makes me wonder if there is a bigger story somewhere and this is just an allusion to it. Remember the guy Wolgast killed in the woods? He told Wolgast he always wanted kids, then Wolgast finds a picture of him with his wife and kids after he is dead. Don't tell me anything, but that stood out to me as odd. Maybe I've seen one too many episodes of LOST and I over-analyze shit sometimes... I want to break down and just read the ever loving shit out of this book tonight.
