Yes, you should be seeing different margins.
If you look in the fo/param.xsl file, you will see that
the 'page.margin.inner' parameter is set to 1.25in
if double.sided is turned on, and 'page.margin.outer'
is set to 0.75in.  If you scan the fo output from the
XSLT transformation, you should see this:

<fo:simple-page-master master-name="body-even" page-width="8.5in" page-height="11in" margin-top="0.5in" margin-bottom="0.5in" margin-left="1.25in" margin-right="0.75in">

If the margin-left and margin-right are "1in", then
something has gone wrong and you aren't getting
'double.sided' fo output.
