Yup, correct.

That's the config for the beaglebo*ard*, for the beaglebo*ne* you'll
have to use the omap_defconfig. This is the config for all omap/am33xx
boards. The resulting image is images/barebox-am33xx-beaglebone.img.

Looks consistent. 0x4020f010 is OMAP3_SRAM_SCRATCH_SPACE + 0x10 used in
beagle_board_init_sdram(). It seems you start a binary for the
beagleboard on your beaglebone.
