Quiescent signal from VCA and Envelope outputs on Cascade

Someone asked me if the VCA goes completely off and the envelope output goes to zero when the Offset pot is all the way down. I measured the following, using a Fluke multimeter on the millivolt setting.

Cascade #1
VCA – 6 mV AC, Envelope – 22 mV DC

Cascade #2
VCA – 9 mV AC, Envelope – 6 mV DC

These are quite small, and I’ve never noticed the signal bleed. Is this normal? Is there a way to trim the offset?
