Yes, that's absolutely the situation. The BFI doesn't have a US arm, and Arrow does, so it makes perfect logistical sense.
Obviously, it will be the same BFI restoration, and it may very likely be literally the same encode, especially if someone like David Mackenzie ends up authoring both discs (which would make perfect logistical sense too).
Earlier examples of similar situations include Out 1, where the Arrow and Carlotta menus differ but the actual video encodes are exactly the same .m2ts files - there was very little point doubling all that effort - and I believe Psychomania is in the same position too. And although the extras on the US editions of Immoral Tales and The Beast differ from the UK ones for various rights-related reasons, the main feature encodes were literally lifted from the UK discs - David and I were perfectly happy with how they turned out, so why not save time?
