Default Stupid Power Supply Question

On the service manual schematic for the Aleph 5, the primary side of the PS is shown disconnected (left half of picture below).

I assume it is drawn this way because the primary could be wired in series for 240V or in parallel for 120V.

So my assumption is that for normal 120V operation the primaries are paralleled and that none of the other components (thermistor, thermal switch, power switch) are duplicated. See the right half of the picture.

Can someone confirm this?

More likely the diagram was meant to convey the
tap options for 240 VAC.
