I've opened several geocaches and then hit the "GPX File" button to create a GPX file of that one cache and many of them have not generated correctly with regard to the <> characters. Instead of < or > the GPX files has < or >. Thus <br> is translated as <br>. Not sure if this happens on any others but here are just two I tried, GCX2RZ and GCYV5X. Is this normal?

What you describe is expected as that is the correct way to represent those characters in XML. As XML uses the angle brackets for its own way, it has to encode angle brackets that aren't part of the XML itself (i.e. those "smuggled" through as payload) as entities.
