Correct, but I'd urge you to step back and look at all the options.
Cc lines in the body (called bodycc) are parsed: see
git-send-email.perl:1361.  By default, everyone (cc, author, self,
sob, bodycc) is cc'ed by default.  You can turn off each of these
individually using --supress-cc which can take values
(all|cccmd|cc|author|self|sob|body|bodycc).  As you can see from
git-send-email.perl:400, the real purpose of --signed-off-by-cc is to
override a sendemail.suppresscc=sob; however, it can't override any
stronger values of suppresscc (body, all).  So, it's mostly a
no-option, and there is no corresponding --[no-]bodycc-cc.  Overall,
the way out of this horrible mess of options is to deprecate
--[no-]signed-off-by-cc, and modify --supress-cc to have a
--no-suppress-cc counterpart, just like --[no-]suppress-from.
