Yes, it is correct: it reports on the character at a certain buffer
position (you elided that part).

If you want a command that could show how to input a sequence of
characters that were composed, it should be a different command, and
the way to type such a sequence cannot be automatically generated,
because how would Emacs know that there's a particular command that
would produce such a sequence?

That's not a character, while this command describes a character.
