Yes. The mesage "found 1 results" means it found an entry in your .netrc
or .authinfo which matches.

The auth-source stuff can be a bit tricky. For https connections with

  machine www.google.com:443 port https login USERNAME password PASS

That's no typo: You have to use ":443" as well as "port https". See also
