That's how it's supposed to work, and is not specific to HE.

Most providers wouldn't allow simultaneous peer + customer relationship, but in this case, I would argue that HE is doing you a favor by leaving your settlement-free peering adjacency in place, for you to dump outbound traffic toward their customers for free.
