Isn't the timecode wrong if you don't use drop frame timecode for NTSC?

e.g., the timecode after exactly 1 hour of NTSC video will be
'00:59:56:12', which is short 3 seconds and 18 frames from one hour.  With
drop frame timecode, the timecode after an hour would be '01:00:00:00',
since 108 timecodes would have been skipped over.
