transmission question

I have a 2000 Pontiac Montana and just wondering when the van is on a slight incline in the road is it normal for the van to roll back when your foot comes off of the brake, the tranny is in drive?
What is normal should it not move when the brake is realeased or is it normal for it to roll back until i give it gas? We are talking very slight incline in the road not going up a mountain if that would help.
Thanks in advance!

Never use the tranny to hold a vehicle on an incline, always use the service brakes---the owner's manual I believe clearly states that.

I have seen that occur in all cars.
