Correct, and it's not the only tool that relies on this assumption. The 
smb.conf manpage warns of this:

Turning off user enumeration may cause some programs to behave oddly. 
For example, the finger program relies on having access to the full user 
list when searching for matching usernames."

The default for 'winbind enum users' changed a while back iirc. It 
defaults to off now and I've had no luck forcing it back on.
