Not quite the case.  The web pvr invokes the get_iplayer script, which 
uses the options file as usual.  However, the web pvr overrides some 
options (mostly the ones you see in the web pvr settings panels) in the 
same way you would if you added them to the command line.  The file 
prefix isn't one of those, so you can set it using --prefs-add and it 
will work with the web pvr.
