Yes, that's what I mean, exactly. 

(Except, of course, that a pure query service may, or may not, apply some
process of inference to the RDF dataset "as sent", and execute the query
against this new, though related, dataset. Inference is in some sense
orthogonal, but it's just as much a change to a supplied dataset as is the
addition of some or many told triples, as I pointed out in an earlier
message.)
