Not according to the wiki:


    dbox can be used in two ways:

         single-dbox (sdbox in mail location): One message per file,
    similar to Maildir. For backwards compatibility, dbox is an alias to
    sdbox in mail_location.

         multi-dbox (mdbox in mail location): Multiple messages per
    file, but unlike mbox multiple files per mailbox.

So the parent appears to be right.
