I'm not sure why you would have expected that, 
since I've never heard "normalized" defined by anyone
with respect to what is *in* a window. But you could
use the "normalized" coordinates of the plot axis
endpoints to position text. Here is an example:

PRO Test
!P.Multi=[0, 3, 2]
   Plot, Findgen(11)
   XYOUTS, !X.Window[0] + 0.2 * (!X.Window[1]-!X.Window[0]), $
           !Y.Window[1] - 0.2 * (!Y.Window[1]-!Y.Window[0]), $
           'This is text', /Normal
