Yep! when you drive a dry peg into your green timber it will swell abit as it absorbs water from the timber.  This makes for a tight fit and is why you set it where you want it.  Also this will casuse the peg to always be tight in the hole.  I have removed pegs from old frames that took a sledge hammer to drive and some we have had to bore a 1/2" hole through to get the peg out with out hurting the timber.
 Better to have learned this now then to find this out next spring when your holes were to large for the pegs.
