YES. This is not me saying this, its the official RedHat Customisation

(page 119 of Customisation guide)

I know, me too (several weeks ago). Once again I thought I had clearly
quoted the book. Even went on to say that I did manage to edit the files

machine and see what happens to your "auth-nxdomain no" line when you click
the save (apply ??) button.
