Yes, they are perfectly normal.
The flyback is working under discontinuous mode, what you can see from the
MOS vds, isrc plots :
source current start from zero at each cycle.
What happens is that, after the mos is opened, you have a short positive
pulse clamped to the ouput voltage (200V 1+us). After that, the inductor
stored energy being discharged (partly in the parasitics caps) the inductor
begins to ring with these parasitics. As the starting voltage of the ringing
is 200V-18V (output-input supplies) then the VDS should ring between 18V +/-
182V, but there's the drain-source mos diode that clamps the negative part
of the waveform, hence the ringing you can see on VDS *and* source current.
