Default 2.4v lightbulb for 2 AA batteries?

I bought a flashlight that came with two spare bulbs, that say on them
2.4v. So does the one in the flashlight. The flashlight uses two
batteries in series, and I thought that should be 3 volts. Is this
"normal" or is the bulb going to burn out quickly? Or what?

No problem with those bulbs. You'll never see 3.0V bulbs in two battery
flash light. If you you had 3.0V bulb soon it'll dim as voltage drops.
