In a perfect world, yes indeed.

And if you control it with an active exponential converter, sure.

But if you're just using a pot, it's going to be an approximation.  And a linear pot into a summing node is a pretty good approximation.  Arguably better than an attenuator circuit with an audio taper pot.
