Yes, that is correct.

Take a look at net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_ctl.c in a >= 2.6.28-rc3 kernel.
This contains both the old sysctl interface and the new netlink one.
The ipvsadm i1.25 code contains the client-side code. You will need
libnl and its headers installed in order to compile netlink support
for ipvsadm.
