It is exactly like that. As far as I know, a separate boot partition is only necessary if you encrypt your entire system.
On my system I only have partitions for root, swap, home and timeshift. On my old laptop I had an encrypted system at times, in which case a separate boot partition was required.

That is all I ever do. But if your motherboard has EFI then you will also need an ESP partition.

Very useful stuff I was unaware of. Thanks, both. Now I know about timeshift and ESP partitions too.

Interesting, I did not know that yet. I have never had to deal with EFI.
