Correct. Per Section 11.2 of the FAQ:
Code:
In the vast majority of hardware in most platforms, X requires 
no configuration at all, it Just Works.

Then when do we need xorg.conf ?
Quoting /usr/X11R6/README:
Code:
For many users of X.Org's servers, an xorg.conf file is not needed,
simply start X, and it will automatically detect and use your
hardware.  If your hardware is not properly autodetected or supported
or not supported as you wish, you will have to create a configuration
file.
