A 105 does click twice during the shift into the middle ring but I would not say it had four positions.
If you keep pushing the lever inward it will click twice during the shift into the middle ring but then it will hit a stop. You're supposed to keep pushing to the end.
Granted, if you don't push until the lever stops but stop after you hear the first click during the shift into the middle ring, (mostly during the upshift,) the derailleur does move to a sort of ghost position between rings.
To put it more clearly, push either the upshift or downshift lever several times. Then you should be able to push the other lever two consecutive times, all the way to the end of its travel, before it becomes inactive, if it's a triple.
