'Tis correct.

Example (for those who like using _sn_ as a news transport):

service nntp
	socket_type     = stream
	protocol        = tcp
	wait            = no
	user            = news
	group           = news
	server          = /usr/bin/env
	server_args     = POSTING_OK=1 PATH=/usr/sbin/:/usr/bin:/sbin/:/bin /usr/sbin/snntpd logger -p news.info
	bind		=

However, you can also do exactly the same thing in exim.conf itself -
OTTOMH the directive is `local_interfaces', BICBW.
