When are RDF statements asserted?

Hi all,

Just checking: Is it correct that publishing an RDF file on the Web  
does not assert the statements therein?

Is it correct that out-of-band information (e.g. a web page stating  
"All these files are up-to-date", or some nonstandard extension of  
RDF) is necessary before an agent can safely act upon any RDF statement?

(Hypothetical example: a FOAF agent that fills my address book with  
contact data for the people I foaf:know.)
