Air pressure in manual trans

I noticed every time I check the trans fluid level in my trans, there always seems to be pressure when I take off the fill plug.
From what I understand, every manual trans I worked on had some kind of vent (definetly on automatics). Question is does the Tremic T6060 have a vent? And where would this pressure come from even when the trans is cold? I know heat will definetley raise the temperature (one of the main reasons for the vent), but I cant see why it would have a check valve (which I doubt it has) to hold the pressure.
Does anyone know anything about this or can let me know if you noticed this?
I'm thinking a clogged vent, the car was in the dealer for a broken slave cylinder and the flywheel, clutch, pressure plate and slave cylinder was replaced, but this was a while a go. Any help would be much appreciated.

This is a sub forum for ZL1 mods. You might get a better response from posting in the V8 and V6 transmissions forum.

I did find a similar problem on a post but not a answer to why an if there should be pressure in the trans, that was posted in 2010.

From what I can feel the vent seems fine from the outside (dust cap in tack), not sure if it has an internal spring regulating pressure in the trans or what, that's what I'm trying to find out if anyone else noticed this.
