That would make sense. There is also a "0" on mine in that same spot.

Having a "0" bolt head is good. It is the smallest size; so if you need to adjust the head space at some time, it should be easy to find the correct size of bolt head. 
Standard sizes are 0,1,2,3. With 3 being the longest.
There are apparently a few "4" bolt heads out there. I have seen a photo of one. But they were not standard issue and unlikely you'll ever see one for sale.
If looking for a new bolt head. Always measure the length of it! because despite the number stamped on the head; there can be some variation. 
Regarding your early question; the flat side on the bolt head is normal on the No4 rifles. 
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
