Correct.   At most, flush your browser cache or shift-reload.

You can do one of a couple things to avoid dummy copies:
  * set the bib_source column on the biblio.record_entry row to a
source (config.bib_source) where the transcendant field is set to TRUE
  * add an 856 field with at least subfield u, which should contain a
URI, and a subfield 9 which contains the shortname of one of your org

The former is for records which should regardless of where you search,
and the the latter is for online resources that have no physical

If you don't like the semantics of either of those, you could use the
opac/slot-format code you add for you 773 to hide the copy summary
