If the camera was held in Portrait mode while recording, yes, this is correct. But if the camera was in a normal or upside down position and incorrectly started recording in portrait, then no. Rotating 90 degrees results in a normal 16:9 image.

If you turn it before or after recording, the result is the same, portrait mode is portrait mode. The only difference is that when putting it in portrait mode while recording, the raw image is displayd turned 90° on the computerscreen, If you turn that in an editing program, you will have black borders left and right.
If you rotate it before recording, the raw image is displayd straight on the computer screen, but also with black borders left and right.
Landscape is 16:9, portait is then 9:16.
If it is the same, I do not understand why tis is added.

If you record in Portrait (with the sides of the camera facing up), then yes, rotating the image in your editor will result in the image being sideways. However, it will result in a 16:9 image. If the camera is in portrait mode but held normally sides to the side) the image will export from the camera as 9:16 with the image sideways. If you rotate the image 90 degrees, it will be a proper 16:9 with the image in the correct orientation.
