Yes.  The SA 3.0 URIDNSBL plugin trims down to the actual domain for
the query.

That's to avoid something like:

foo.bar.baz.test.something.else.spam.com

where if it wasn't just domain only, there'd be queries for:

foo.bar.baz.test.something.else.spam.com
bar.baz.test.something.else.spam.com
baz.test.something.else.spam.com
test.something.else.spam.com
something.else.spam.com
else.spam.com
spam.com

which is just bad for lots of reasons.
