That's how i originally set mine as well - but after a lot of rewire my alternator to battery charge line now goes through that stud on the starter, which made the solenoid useless and now removed. I now have a Cole Hersee 24200 latching solenoid in its place which with a momentary toggle switch isolates and disconnects the battery from the system. It's also a theft deterrent. I really don't care if there is current there as my starter is way low and almost hidden behind the headers and 'buried' with engine setback in the firewall. If I decide to isolate that part of the system, will install another latching solenoid though it will complicate the starting sequence with another toggle switch and more wiring.

This is how my battery disconnect is wired. A second one could be used if you wanted to isolate the starter. It would have a second toggle switch, etc. Then you could do away with the suspect Ford solenoid - but it would complicate the system and still have a solenoid there, but operating differently:
