Yes, that's correct. I'll add an explanation to the commit messages. I'm
actually not convinced that this behavior should be the default (vs. allowing
the caller to opt-in to it if needed), but this is how it works now...

A while back I also started work on a documentation patch for the skcipher_walk
functions, but it's still pretty incomplete. I'll see if I can get it in a
state to send out.
