No, this is a another bad block table. [1] You need to generate the bbt.
Factories only marks block as bad(with an mark pattern).

You can "try" to generate a bbt when you generate a nand bad block aware
device, nand command "nand -a", then run "nandtest -t -m /dev/" to fill
this bbt with "current" badblocks.

I don't know if this generates a bbt for you. But give it a try, I think
it should do :/
