Correct. "data stale" is meant to be an indication that something is wrong with the UPS or driver, rather than as a definitive power state. Ideally, upsmon sees a transition from "OL" to "OB" to "OB LB" without any intervening "data stale" errors.
I would recommend investigating ways around the "data stale" error, rather than investing time in logic that is only meant to be a last resort. The driver man pages mention a few cases where the NUT default timeouts might not be appropriate, and can be adjusted to avoid the "data stale" condition.
