Exactly. However, there is no need for any edge~trailing stokes.
Whatsoever. Grind must be compensated for, at some point.

I like that JeffB said there is no one way to sharpen, that is obviously true. On the forum here there is a diversity of sharpening technique but only one sharpening result; a sharp knife. So, I would say try out different things, go with what does work for you.
