Yes. It comes close to the calculation I posted a few days ago of the
expected number of matches in a population with an even frequency
distribution among N alleles for each marker, where I picked N=5 as
probably the best approximation. That calculation gave 0.328 as the
ratio of expected matches to twice the number of markers.
I don't think your histogram is out of the ordinary.
