Steven. What you are getting is correct but you can't do HDR this way.
Yes. Multiple exposure gets reset to OFF after you take the photo.
Your over exposed photo is what you get when doing multiple exposure using the same scene. You end up with a photo that overlays the frames so everything is brighter.
I don't have a D7000 but I used my D700 instead and the procedure is the same for both cameras.
Here is an example of using 3 bracketed exposures, +/- 1 EV. using the multiple exposure mode. Note blown highlights. This photo is lighter than my +1 bracketed shot.
Here are the same 3 bracketed photos using HDR Pro in CS5. The highlights are slightly darker than the original and the dark trees are brighter.
