That is precisely correct, yes.  Most daughterboards use an analog
quadrature mixer to produce
  a complex (I and Q) baseband signal.

The TV_RX is one that *doesn't* -- it's a conventional superheterodyne
receiver, with a final IF
  frequency of (as I recall) 5.75MHz, which is passed to a single ADC
channel, and the FPGA
  mixes it down to a complex baseband digitally using a digital
quadrature mixer.
