As long as there is no grinding noise (as in a gear teeth not engaging properly) when you move the chain backwards it should be fine. It probably has at least one plastic gear so you don’t want to put any more wear on it than necessary. Just make sure that’s not why you can move it backwards more easily than forward. You should be able to see the motor turn inside the housing as it moves.
