Your impression is correct, BUT it depends on appropriate settings for
bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings and
bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings_interval, i.e. they should both be
reasonably small numbers - normal defaults are 3 warnings at 7 day

It also depends on the user's delivery status being 'disabled by
bounce' and it depends on the daily cron/disabled job being run.
