Correct.  This is mentioned in the documentation and in the FAQ.

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/interactive/functions-sequence.html
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faqs.FAQ.html#4.11.4

You can manually set a sequence's value with setval() or ALTER
SEQUENCE, but that's not the same as rolling back values that you
didn't use.
