Out of Gamut and the color black

when I softproof my image and turn on the out of gamut option the blacks in my work always read as out of gamut. Is this normal?

My work emulates black ink drawing on top of color and it always throws me when I softproof in CMYK for print.

Yes, that is normal, depending on the CMYK profile, but real black is hard to get on top of colors.

I suppose I could soft proof my color layer’s seperately instead of flattening the image first…
