No, not quite - Certain US laws apply on board US carriers of course (given the state of registration), but certainly nothing from a customs perspective. Otherwise you'd have to do your customs and border formalities before you boarded, would you not? Saying that an aircraft is "territory" of the state of registration is somewhat of an over simplification.
