Correct.

The Catalyst 6500/7600 OSR with Sup2/Sup32/Sup720 can be configured to
hash based on L4 ports in addition to the IP addresses (for IPv4):

This is handy when you have multiple "striped" TCP connections between
a single pair of hosts, and want them to be able to use multiple
equal-cost paths, but still want to avoid reordering inside each
connection (as you would inevitably get with per-packet load
sharing).
