You are correct.  The release bearing should NEVER rest against the
pressure plate.  There should be a clearance when the clutch is disengaged.
 the only time the release bearing should be in contact with the pressure
plate springs/levers is during clutch actuation.  If allowed to rotate with
the flywheel/clutch assy constantly then it will wear out very quickly.
