That is correct and it will only be displayed on machines that have the relevant sensors.

As for the rotation not working. The library that handles the sensors (iio-sensor-proxy) is relatively new and may still have hardware specific
quirks. There are instructions at on checking if the sensor is working properly
Run through that, then file a bug!
