Exactly.  We read the byte code at deploy time and that lets us know what things that class
will eventually need and we take the steps to ensure they are properly built and available
at runtime.  But was we don't have any roll in actually constructing instances of that class
(junit, testng, etc will do that themselves), we offer that hook as a way of saying "I created
this instance, but I want you to do injection on it".
