I'm no expert neither. But the experts have a nice FAQ:
http://unicode.org/faq/normalization.html

The Introduction of Unicode Normalization Forms is also a good read; I
never got further than that.
http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr15/

(apparently you got it nearly right: if I understand the last document,
the decomposed form is u + umlaut rather then umlaut + u, a very minor
difference)
