Short description of error
According to the official documentation, the Normal option "controls how much velocity fluid is given along a face Normal." but it's clearly emitting from the vertex normal.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Default cube, create a mantaflow smoke simulation. Try to add to the cub the inflow velocity and add normal to a certain value. The smoke is emitted from the vertex.
