Correct, assuming the "build" number you refer to is a revision number
generated by SVN and not a number generated by something like the Delphi
IDE which can be incremented each time you run the compiler.

A good use case is in the nightly build. e.g.

TortoiseSVN-1.4.0.7198-dev-win32-svn-1.4.0.msi generated about midnight UTC.
Now, i.e. at the time of writing this reply the repository rev number is
up to 7206 so I think you will get the picture.

Further to that is that it doesn't make any difference where in the repo
the most recent commit occurs. It could have been on the Trunk, a Branch
or the creation of a new Tag. Rev numbers are global.

Hope you have a good experience with SVN and TortoiseSVN.

Peter
