How is the 'decay' function implemented within Metermaid throttle tables?

In the documentation about the newer 'penalize' option, it states this:

penalize - After quota_time seconds, throttle will normally reset the connection count to 0, but if the penalize option is enabled, throttle will decrement the connection count by quota (but not less than 0) so that additional connection attempts will penalize future quota_time periods.

That seems to imply that if you are NOT using penalize, the algorithm is to reset to 0 as soon as the quota_time period is up.  Is this correct?
