It is not weird in my experience, though I’m usually doing closer small room work.

How could it not be weird? At 16KHz, the response at 90 degree off is more than 15dBs down. Take a look at the diagram.

I don't have to look at it, I use the mic in that configuration frequently. Works well.

I'd like to try this, but I admit I don't understand what is supposed to be happening. Is the point to block the sound (as in maybe sticking your finger in the exposed ear), or to listen to both the "naked ear" and the "canned ear"?

Thank you.

Listen to both
The ear will decode it, just as in MS before we had MS decode for the Nagra in the 80s
