Does FreeBSD start slices at head boundaries?

Installing FreeBSD 8.x I select "A" at the fdisk partition editor to
use the entire disk. It creates an unused slice with offset 0 and 63
sectors in size. Then partition 1 starts at sector 63 and utilizes
the remaining disk space. Does sysinstall's diskPartitonEditor macro
automatically start partitions at head boundaries? The reason I ask
is because I am most familiar with sector 64 being the start of a head
boundary as opposed to 63. Is my understanding incorrect?
