Not quite:

It's actually quite complicated and even depends on exact version of
Solr you are using. In fact, out of all the analyzers you showed
above, I think only LowerCase will be present on the chain. Look for
(multi) marker at: for more

On a higher level, I would suggest getting away from *-based expansion
and looking at EdgeNGrams instead. You can see an example of
autocomplete at and the
matching configuration at:

Or a dedicated Suggester module, though information on that is a bit
harder to find.
