Question on desktop file exec lines

I think I already know the answer to both but I'd like to double-check.

1) When dealing with desktop files that have %u or %U in the name, if
the argument is a relative file path, the file path should be made
absolute with getcwd(), correct?

2) When dealing with %f or %F, the file path should *not* be expanded, correct?
