Yes, that is the intent.

It officially stands for "inits", but what it means is more or
less up to the style.

In some styles, yes. In others not. An author with  a von part
can be typeset as both

	von Munchhausen
	Munchhausen, von

this is a matter of style (as are the variious choices for
initials, middle name and first name).
