Correct. I believe ad blockers either point undesirable domain content to 127.0.0.1 or just do not render the content.

Flash on Linux sucks battery power as all rendering is done by the CPU. My biggest reason for running Flashblock in Firefox/Iceweasel is to conserve battery life. Same with NoScript.
