Yes, this is correct. There are only 150 available symbols while both DMC and Anchor have more than 400 colors each. After the pattern is generated, the symbols are assigned to the used thread colors. How they are assigned depends on the remaining colors in the color list and the amount of stitches per color. Due to this process, the chance that both the DMC and Anchor patterns get the same symbol/oolor list is pretty low.
