You are correct, as far as the first version of threads for Linux (which is
usually referred to as "LinuxThreads").
However, there is a new thing out now called NPTL (IIRC) that is a real

it, but it is on my TODO list to take a look at it one of these days and
try recompiling my threaded app with it.
