No, this is "correct". The xheight of Helvetica is bigger than the
xheight of Times, and the times.sty package shows this correctly.
Typosgraphically both fonts *are* 10pt in this package.

Don't use times.sty if you want things to look like Word. Use
pslatex.sty instead, as this implements the correction you describe.
