Yes, that's the intent. Though perhaps we should just change it.

The problem is that only symbols with a prompt string can be set explicitly,
e.g. in a kconfig file. So it's not possible to migrate a symbol to a new one
without breakage, unless both are to remain separately promptable. It seems
there should be a way, but last I checked I don't think there was...
