Someone asked this question just recently on the mailing list, and I've included the response below. TL;DR is that it is expected behavior.

Once again, this because the UV-5R does not use offsets for memory channels. The "+-" indicates that the RX frequency is different that the TX frequency. So you will also see this indication when a cross band channel has been selected or when a receive only channel (TX inhibited by setting 'Duplex' = 'off'') is selected.
