No, that's not correct.

It's because some implementations either need at least one node even
in an empty container (which requires the moved-from object to
allocate memory after it's move from) or because debugging "safe STL"
implementations perform memory allocation during a move.

Although those reasons are related to memory allocation, they're not
to do with Allocators, the same reasons would apply if everything used
