Yes exactly. It is just like the other "make *config". It only creates a config file and nothing more. I've used it on embedded boards to get a proper config. I would NFS mount the source, log into the embedded device, cd to the NFS mounted directory and run the "make localmodconfig" (well this is actually a lie, since I really just manually ran streamline_config.pl, but this should also work), and then built the resulting config on a faster box.
