Almost, bugged speed is commanded to the MTOM manoeuvring speed for the selected flap e.g. you select TOGA and F15, the magenta bug moves to the F15 manoeuvring speed (at MTOM).

It’s worth noting this speed may not be what you expect, the MTOM used to calculate this speed is set in the FMC by the operator and may not be the same as the MTOM used on the line (many airlines artificially reduce the MTOM to avoid Nav charges for heavier aircraft but the FMC MAY have the structural limit MTOM).
