Water in vent pipes?

Is there supposed to be water in the vent pipe for the kitchen. The drain from the kitchen outside has water in it, the main drain is ok but pipe from the kitchen always seems to have water. I was under the impression it shouldn’t.

The kitchen sink trap should have water in it to stop smells coming up. If there is water in a waste pipe the fall of the pipe is not sufficient
