Hot Water Heater Plumbing

My hot water heater has your typical red and blue supply lines each with a with valve. It also has a short line connecting the two main lines. It is red for about 6 inches, a valve in the middle, then blue for about six inches. I'm guessing this is what the owners manual is referring to as a bypass so I can take the heater "off-line" from my water system if winterizing with antifreeze. Is this assumption correct?
Also, once I flush the system for the summer and I open the two main supply lines, I assume this bypass then gets closed?
Are my assumptions correct?
Thanks,
Ted
