Certainly not normal.
You do need to run some upgrade commands (DB scripts) when upgrading
though. The (upstream) upgrade will normally prompt you for what
version of RT you are upgrading from and which one you are upgrading
to. Do you remember seeing that?
For the RT 3.8 Debian package, there was a directory,
/etc/request-tracker3.8/etc/upgrade. Do you have something similar for
RT 4(.2) ?
3.8 was the last time I used the deb package for RT, and I don't
remember what the upgrades were like - I'd imagine it also varies
depending on if you use db-config or not. We use Debian for the OS,
but use upstream tarballs for the RT installation. There is a make
target that handles applying the DB upgrade scripts.
