Yes, so? "Plug" doors were common in the first two decades of the 20th
century. For another example, see PRR's class XL boxcars (some of which
were so equipped).

The Wagner door was used by many railroads around 1900.  The Pennsy, Colorado Midland, Santa Fe and SP Lines plus many others used themor a similar version extensively on their box cars built during that time period.  It was like a plug door.
