In seeing it, or in finding it confusing? :-)  In either case, "no".

No.  My mail client doesn't do fancy-schmancy rendering - it runs in a
text window, in fact - and it shows me the emails as they are.  It
doesn't even burst MIME multipart messages without specific action on
my part.  And I'm seeing the same syndrome you sketch.
