That is right.

The master branch is the authoritative branch.  It is the branch that
should be queried by most hook operations.  For an operation on a bound
branch, there is also a local branch, which is not authoritative, but
might be local, might be faster, might be out-of-date.

For operations on unbound branches, there is only a master branch.
