Almost correct. Moving the cam to just contact the point arm sets the ignition timing. The rotor setting in its notch is just going along for the ride.

So initially pointing that notch/rotor to the #1 distributor housing contact/pin helps one determine when they are close to finding the cam gear dimple.
