You're correct. I had been working with sub-metric GPS receivers, and what 
they do is (IIRC) record the phase carrier of the GPS sats (or some other 
pre-lat-lon info). Then you download the data to a computer, launch mmoffice, 
and let that software do the math: get the pre-lat-lon stuff, plus the 
correction stuff, and spit out pretty coordinates.

It is better explained in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Time_Kinematic .
