The above is correct and is the answer if by "moderation bit active"
you mean you set emergency (Emergency moderation of all list traffic.)
to Yes.

On the other hand, if you moderate users the 'correct' way by setting
each user's mod bit on (see Membership Management... -> Membership
List -> Additional Member Tasks) and setting Privacy options... ->
Sender filters -> default_member_moderation to Yes to moderate new
members by default, then the moderators will get notices of held posts
as long as General Options -> admin_immed_notify is Yes.
