Yes, this is correct.

But....Then, if you are using Auto ISO, the ISO may also change as you change EC (also called EV by many people).

To me, it just makes more sense to use camera EC only for when you want to change the exposure for a series of shots. If each shot is different, you should use aperture and shutter to control the exposure with camera EC set to zero.
