Yep. The laws of magic break around Elder Things summoned from Outside Time And Space, so MR 5-10 is common. It isn't universal – lesser Elder Things trapped permanently in the material world commonly lack it. (And on a more meta level, some Elder Things have such high HT and Will, or so many specific immunities, that we left off MR as excessive.)
