Yes and a good confirmation is to use one of those temp. guns on the
cylinder head and compare to the rad top temp; best to do this test on the
roadside after coasting to a stop.

As the sensor is in the radiator it measures the temp in the top tank
after the thermostat. If the thermostat is working correctly the coolant
temp in the engine should be around the opening temp of the thermostat.
