It's not intended. It's a side-effect of a bug. When switching to the 
Counters preferences pane in the Preferences window, the 0-badges are 
enabled such that one can view the counters even if they are 0. They are 
then disabled again when switching to a different pane. But if you close 
the Preferences window then the 0-badges stick (this is the bug). Try 
opening Preferences (⌘,) and switch to a different pane.

Let me know if that does not fix the problem.
