Yes, that is correct. You can (and should) revert /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf to
its unmodified state.

Each of the individual fields in /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf will
override the same field from /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf, so you only need to
include those you need to modify from their default value.
