Truth? I'm not sure.
I think that's what I remember reading. And I also remember that a BMW M suspension engineer interviewed about EDC when the ZCP option came out (there's a thread on it somewhere as well as copies of that interview on other websites) said that on NON-ZCP cars with EDC, he recommended Normal for tracks with elevation changes and Sport only for completely flat tracks. Ironically he didn't make any recommendations for ZCP EDC even though that was the subject of the interview.
