Is it normal to be able to set the contrast all the way at max and not have any problem? When setting the contrast on my Samsung PN60E6500EF Plasma is see little difference between 90 and 100.

I set it at 99 and ran test patterns through Calman @ 100, 105 and 109% and showed no crushing. The RGB tracked on the Calman graph.

Yes, you can max the contrast on many sets without clipping (especially Samsung displays in my experience).
However, that doesn't mean 100 is the right setting. You also have to look for color shifting and/or see if you experience eye strain. Sometimes if you set the contrast too high, shades of white will start to turn pink or orange.

Knowing that the PNE6500 plasmas aren't that bright, I think you'll want to set the contrast as high as possible.

Didn't see any color shifting. And your right about the brightness, I'm only getting 30 fl in movie mode after cal.
