Yes, that is correct. The last version of Solaris with source code
used zpool version 28. This is the last version that is readable by
non-Solaris operating systems FreeBSD, GNU/Linux, but also
OpenIndiana. The filesystem, "zfs", is technically at the same
version, but you can't access it if you can't access the pool :-).

If you want to access the data now, your only option is to use Solaris
to read it, and copy it over (eg. with zfs send | recv) onto a pool
created with version 28.
