It is not unusual and is usually negotiated as part of the administrative contract between your employer and broker. With more brokers offering cheaper (free) and easier (fractional) trades, more investors are moving funds post-employment from a 401k to a DIY IRA. So it should not be surprising that 401k plans take steps to discourage that action.

Who notes that fee often will not apply if the IRA and the 401k are hosted by the same broker...
