Your interpretation of the oil display is correct.
I broke off the dipstick handle on 97 sedan and was able to find the same length on junk yard. Seems that older models have better plastic used.
On 99 ML i remember touching the dipstick about 3 times. It never needs oil between the changes.

I remember cars, where 1 liter per 1000 kilometers was good.
In my motorhome pouring one quart with fuel fill up is a standard (but the tank is 120 gal).
It all comes to some luck. I have good luck to Mercedes. As mentioned our original 99 ML320 never needed oil added in its 70k miles life.
Even our "new" 97 E300 D didn't take any oil in last 6000 miles. 234,000 miles "on the clock".
Than fixing oil leaks is my religion. ;)
