I don't speak Texinfo, but yes, probably.
To repeat: "Subject line says it all." Contrast the
Elisp manual, where variable descriptions are introduced
with `Variable' or `User Option', macros are introduced
with `Macro', and functions are introduced with `Command'
See (elisp) `A Sample Variable Description'.
