That is correct (and something I didn't know):
* if outside a textbox, the "Correct Spelling Automatically" option in Safari is greyed-out, but you can still see a (greyed-out) checkmark if it is on.
* if in a textbox, that option is enabled (black), and the presence or absence of the checkmark indicates whether it is enabled.

For the System Preferences, it is under Keyboard -> Text.
