You are correct. The way you use the chassis range numbers is the first number covers all sequential VIN values up to and including that number and the second number covers all VIN values above that number. The numbers after the "F" are the sequential serial numbers of the VIN, and the break point represents a change in the car design or an update that was included for all chassis numbers from some point in time on.
