[Nut-upsuser] File nut.conf, does mode=netserver means no upsmon?

I'm reading man nut.conf, and trying to understand the MODE directive.

Does the specification mode=netserver mean that only upsd and the 
driver(s) will be started, and that upsmon will not be started?

The man page says "Distribution’s init script should source this file in 
order to determine which components have to be started." But looking at 
the code which starts upsd in the openSUSE distribution, it looks as if 
the file nut.conf is ignored and mode=standalone assumed.  Is this true in 
other distributions?
