Correct. When the engine is running the hydraulic system activates all 4 brakes as if you are sitting with your foot on the brake. When you shut the engine off the hydraulics stop working and the mechanical park brake grips only the rear brakes. You will get a slight 'kick' as the park brake takes over.
