Not really (IMO :), it says:
# This is ssh client systemwide configuration file.  This file provides
# defaults for users, and the values can be changed in per-user configuration
# files or on the command line.

Ie. "With this file, you can specify defaults for ssh(1) which the users
can override with .ssh/config or with command-line options".

I guess the wording could be a bit better though -- it could be understood
the other ways too.
