Probably so -- but I would stress "mostly," as I'm not enough of an expert. I see it's also used in some TLRs, for example, of which I know very little.

Around the time that folders fell out of fashion in favor of rigids is also when the Compur-Rapid morphed into the Synchro-Compur, but the transition was probably more complicated than that.
