Correct, but you can set a 'quick' option there which will make it finish in seconds.
And before you get too far, I'd really recommend using something other than FFS as a filesystem. This would mean a repartition and reformat, but it's worth it. You gain both speed and stability. I've had FFS destroy a few of my files a couple of times.

Here's one guide:

And use PFS3-AIO instead, then there's just one filesystem to choose from which will automatically select the best on the current system.
