Manta B - Front Spoiler / Wheel Arch Trim Interface

Yes, correct. Cars with polished trim fitted from new had spoilers with a cutout so that the plastic spoiler would fit snugly against the wing panel (Cavalier coupe/Sportshatch and late Manta B).

If you bought a replacement spoiler it would come from the factory without the cutout (like the one in your picture). You sawed away the cutout to make it fit properly.

The plain spoiler was used on cars without the arch trims (GT/J etc.), hence the spare part was sold to work with both options. There are a few arch-trim cars around without the cutout but they may have been fitted with accessory or replacement spoilers which were not modified at the time.
