Yes - as you seem to know what you are doing. :-)

Well, if something peculiar were needed, it would be documented in the
point release notes with plenty of noisy warnings. But a point release is
just a "tidy-up" of the previous point release. It doesn't change the
on-disk structure or alter what the engine does to databases (other than
stopping it from doing something it ought not to have been doing, of course).

It's always a good practice to take backups of your database before
stepping up a point, even though upgrading to the next point release
doesn't necessitate a restore. Still, I'm sure you did that. :-)
