Yep, if you're rendering everything else linear. Keep in mind a lot of values in built in shaders/lights could be (probably are) SRGB, so it's best to run some tests and see what you get.

A question for everyone, not exactly SESI related.... When you use an 
image downloaded from the internet as a texture, do you do a sRGB to 
linear correction before using it to render with?
