Yes, that is the default behavior. The theory being that it's a network volume, and effectively read only, users wouldn't want the network & CPU activity of a NetBooted lab all trying to maintain an index of the same volume.
You could probably mount the NetBoot image, delete the .metadataneverindex file and force build an index on it if you like.
I played with this this morning. It's actually pretty easy.
mount the NetBoot image
$ rm /Volumes/<thevol>/.metadata_neverindex
(I had to eject & re-mount the volume here to flush some spotlight cache)
$ mdutil -i off /Volumes/<the_vol> (shut off future indexing of the volume)
$ mdimport /Volumes/<the_vol> (force build an index on the volume)
eject the NetBoot image
