UUID numbers

An image is made on to a usb memory stick.
The destination partition is reformatted and the image from the memory stick is put on to it.

The UUID for the reformatted partition with the image from the memory stick on it is the same as the UUID of the partition from which the image was taken.

Is this the way that it is supposed to work or is it a sign of finger trouble?

regards,

Yes, the UUID of the restored partition will be the same as the original.
