Yes, this is true. Sorry I explained my self badly. A client can be a
server or user. I would look to use it as one of the lines in
'smtpd_client_restrictions' rather than 'smtpd_helo_restrictions' as the
client and it's helo (ehlo) may not be the same. Postfix will look to
reject all mail at RCPT TO stage as some (Broken) MTAs don't understand
550 earlier in the SMTP conversation (You can control this with
'smtpd_delay_reject' although I would suggest leaving it) so which ever
part of does the rejecting, it all happens at the same time.

More details can be found here and
serch for smtpd.
