Question 95 C280: ABS Question

I have a question about my 1995 C280's ABS system.

I don't believe that is has 4 (individual) wheel ABS. I came to the conclusion that there is a sensor in each front wheel, and one sensor in the rear differential (axle?) that operates the rear wheels as one.

Thus 3 ABS sensors:
1 in each front wheel = 2
1 in rear drive shaft = 1

Am I correct in my assumption? Is the Mercedes ABS system still like this today? Or does it use 4 wheel ABS on current models?
And I'm assuming this configuration (3 ABS sensors) because the front brakes are more important and vital when braking hard, in addition to steering capability.
