Yes. What it seems android is doing here is it avoids applying external (dynamic) hard iron calibration. _(BTW, it might be useful to distinguish dynamic calibration from sensor fusion, we're lacking the right terms here to make precise sense of things.)_

As a side node, do other platforms that expose magnetometers offer this data?
