Yes, correct.

But the contents of the returned table are not objects, but merely values.

In this case the returned table contains a single string value .... which happens to be the name of a table, but it is not the table.

Or do I get this wrong?

The string value might be the same as the name of an object, but is not the 
object.
Select returns a table, not a name or a string.

The outer select operates on this unnamed table, not any particular cell in it.
