Yes, that's true.  "@key{F1}" in Texinfo produces "<F1>" in Info,
without the single quotes.  In the printed output it produces
something resembling a keyboard key with a label on it.  Taking these
in quotes would be wrong, e.g. because then "@kbd{C-x @key{RET}}"
would produce `C-x `<RET>'' with nested quotes which looks ugly.
