ethernet pacet minimum size (again)

I'm sorry to ask again this question again, but my curiosity wasn't
satisfied by the answers.
So, is it normal that my linux kernel (2.2.10) can send smaller packets
than the minimum allowed size on ethernet (for example, my ARP requests
are 42 byte long and should be padded to 60 bytes with 0).

In the kernel, (I think) it is the job of the ethernet layer to padd too
small packets, but it can't unpadd them, so I should see theses 0.
