If you don't know which exact ESC it is, I don't think anybody is going to be able to answer your question.
Is it normal/abnormal to be able to run a 4s truck on 2s (in general)

Smaller ones are typically rated from 2-3S and throw error codes when you go higher or lower, 1/8th ones are usually 3s-6s.

Well, after googling it, found it on hobby king, then found this manual:
https://hobbyking.com/media/file/773373990X365809X42.pdf

This manual has a larger image in it of the esc listing, page 6:
https://hobbyking.com/media/file/b/a/basher_sabertooth_instructions_manual_2017.pdf

The listing on hobbyking says it has a 100A esc in it, but doesn't say what it is. The manual lists out 5 esc's, one of which is a 100A, appears to be Hobbywing WP-S8A-RTR, can't quite make it out, but guessing that's it. It's listed as capable of 2S-4S.

Oddly, finding it tough to find info about the wp-s8a on the hobbywing site.

These escs in a lot RTR's are Hobbywings but not exactly. They are rated different in amp rating. Hobbywing does not brand a 100a esc yet they are included in some RTR's same with 50a esc's. 80a esc's (Redcat for one), 70a esc's (Kinexsis for one), 45a esc's, 130a esc's (Dynamite for one) and maybe more. It's like giving you a Hobbywing with a lower spec and not branding it a Hobbywing.

The esc's listed in the Basher manual that Olds97 linked are all capable of running on 2s even says 6 cell nimh.
