It is entirely correct. Although the OP may not have realised it, he was
concerned whether

   grub-install /dev/sdX

was executed during an upgrade or dist-upgrade. He may have thought it
could occur during installing new GRUB packages or a new kernel. If it
does I've never experienced anything like this happening. Of course,
there may be a script which does this and I have overlooked it.
