Yes, you are correct. I guess when I started looking at Access back in
the 1990s (I started on Access 2.0) I knew that it uses Jet as the
actual backend, and then later learned that it could be used to create a
UI for MSDE. However, because Jet is the default, it comes with Access,
I don't know of any other UI products that use Jet, and most people
using Access use Jet, it seems to me that Access and Jet have become
pretty much synonymous.
