That looks right to me.  Here's a typical Sun console port:

Very occasionally we'll see a spurious <BREAK> if the Portmaster is
powered off.  Other than that, we can pass <BREAK>s with conserver, and
otherwise the ports never see them.

We use Portmaster 2e boxes to monitor all our serial ports.  They work
great and cost a lot less than buying anything new.
