Correct.  The process requirement is for simplicity of administration
(but unless smbd is run in single process mode it will be a different
fork()ed child).  

When the idea to move to a single daemon was proposed, I initially
disliked it, but Samba4's internal design is such that it can be changed
without major pain, so I left that argument for later.
