That is correct. I have looked at the stored bookmarks on the device for kepubs to check this. And to compare with what they are doing for epubs and other formats.

I just had a quick look at the EPUB 3 CFI spec. Is the bookmark in the calibre viewer based on this? From the examples, it looks similar, but that might be a coincidence. The reason for the interest is that I have been meaning to look see if I could translate bookmarks between the Kobo to the viewer.
