"me" in ipfw rules - does it include aliases?

the ipfw man page says:

  me   matches any IP address configured on an interface in the system.

which suggests that if i code my rules using "me" then when i add an alias
ip address to an interface with ifconfig, these "me" rules will immediately
work for the newly added address as they do for other addresses.

is that correct?
