Yes, that is correct. That's a cool konqueror extension for simplifying audio ripping... it makes use of online cddb for getting track and album names. Depending on which audio packages are installed, it makes it easy to rip to .wav(uncompressed), .mp3, .ogg, .cda(original tracks), etc. You can also rip the entire CD as one long track if you want. There are options for ripping tracks with their full names or rip them named like 'track01.wav' if preferred.
