Hi People,

Can anyone please explain to me what does this means ?

I have 2 nodes Mailbox serve role configured as CCR in two sites namely
Node1 and Node2, as at the moment

Node1 is the active (in Production site HQ)
Node2 is the quorum owner (in DR site remote office)

is this normal ?

at the moment all email traffic flows are working fine without any issues at all.

Windows cluster group or quorum owner is not important and it can stay on passive node also and when Windows reboots cluster service will take care of moving it to alternate available node.

Exchange group is important because it has to take care of all transaction logs and it takes more time comparatively. also it should not be done from Cluster admin. Since cluster group does not take much time (few Seconds) as it just need to change ownership of the quorum, it is not required to move that manually. The order also does not matter. cluster service will take care of it automatically when the quorum owner is down.

If you prefer to move it manually i would recommend to do this at off hours which can minimze impact if you have any issues at movement.
