Correct.  "ancillary" category ended up with full of Porcelain, it
seems, but there still are plumbing commands there, and this is a
prime example that should not be mixed up with Porcelain commands.

Among the remaining ones in the list, cherry and get-tar-commit-id
are probably better classified as plumbing.  I do not know why
cherry is marked for completion; perhaps some crazy people use that
on the command line?
