Exactly.

If you are interested in the real code,
see scripts/Makefile.clean


__clean-files   := $(extra-y) $(extra-m) $(extra-)       \
                   $(always) $(targets) $(clean-files)   \
                   $(hostprogs-y) $(hostprogs-m) $(hostprogs-) \
                   $(hostlibs-y) $(hostlibs-m) $(hostlibs-) \
                   $(hostcxxlibs-y) $(hostcxxlibs-m)
