No, it isn't.
You said that you ran 'net ads status' on a client and the above was in
the output, this is correct because that command displays the details
for the machines account.

All computers are just users with an extra objectclass, so they also
have a sAMAccountName, but to differentiate from an actual user, a
computer sAMAccountName has a '$' on the end.
