OpenPGP card questions

I just purchased 4 OpenPGP cards and am configuring one of them.
Everything is working perfectly so far. I am using the Gemalto USB
Shell Token V2 as the reader device with PCSC-Lite. You can see
pictures of it here: <https://www.mukund.org/>
1. There is a typo on the printed sheet supplied with the OpenPGP card.
2. When running gpg --armor --export-secret-key <card-key-id>, it
actually generates ---PGP PRIVATE KEY BLOCK--- output instead of an
error. I had chosen not to make any backups when generating the key on
the card. I asked about this on IRC and was told it might be a stub
containing the card ID, etc., but am looking for a more authoritative
answer (i.e., without the word `maybe') just to be sure. :)
pgpdump says "Sym alg - Plaintext or unencrypted data(sym 0)", but this
cannot be an unencrypted key, right? Is it a stub? Is there any
method using which the private key can be recovered from the card?
