Default Circuit Breaker Indication In A House Service Box Question

Hello:

Is it possible that when a circuit breaker in a service box opens due to a
short in the circuit that it is controlling, that the lever does not (also)
move to the other position ?

e.g., that there might not be any visible indication that it has tripped ?

If so, is this fairly common with circuit breakers in a house service box ?
Likely ?

Why ?

Thanks,
Bob

most move to a mid position betweeen off and on, although i have seen
trips where theres no visible indication and one mmust turn each one
off then on. the tripped one will feel different
