My Bolex's (rex4, i suppose!) MOT/0-knob is at "0" and the motor is still running. I can't even turn it to "MOT".

Of course, there's no harm because the motor runs! Luckily it's not the other way around.

 

Just wondering what might be the case.

 

Probably I can't now use the MST with it or rewind the reel but I have a fully working REX5 so that's not a big deal.

The lever has probably just been attached in the wrong position. Try undoing the screw that holds it in place and re-fitting the lever in the MOT position.
