Do I need to download Nikon's lens distortion control data?

Above is Distortion Control Data available for download.

Did my new D800 come with this already pre-loaded, in which case correction is already being applied?

Am I correct that this is the data on the imperfections of my Nikkor lenses, (pincushion, CA, vignetting etc.) that would be automatically corrected when using those lenses?

FWIW, whether the data is pre-loaded or must be downloaded is not addressed in the User's Guide.

Nikon D800
