Yes it appears that is correct. Going back to this thread:
there was a whole lot of discussion on bringing up a '730 with TU58EM, and the 
updates to it (to fix some time delays)
to support the TU58 device on the '730 with TU58EM.

I have since updated mainline TU58EM to version 1.4m to add Mark Blair's VAX 730 
timing and background mode changes
(enable via -x and -b switches). Source and cygwin executable here:
Functionally this should be the same as Mark's version 1.4j + his changes.
