My understanding is that you are correct about this. "Permissive" only
logs these denials of what _would_ happen should you switch the SELinux
configuration to "enforcing" mode. However, the access is still granted.

I'm not much of an SELinux expert though; and would appreciate the
further advice of one who is. :)
