I just got this Lexus with 40k miles it runs and drives great, the engine temperature is just below half so that's good but when I drive it for even a few miles the engine is just abnormally hot to touch after and then stays hot for hours and hours after it's off. Is this normal for these cars?

Why are you touching the engine after using it?

Yes, that is normal. When the car is just sitting there in an enclosed garage, there is nothing to help remove the head. No flowing water, no air, no radiator. The engine works by combustion, aka, hot. The engines are designed to run hot, to get hot as fast as possible.
