OK, this means for a 85mm full frame lens, we put in 85mm right?

Yes and no.

We put in 85mm because it is an 85mm lens.

We do not care what format the lens is intended to cover. it is not relevant. All we need to know is that the focal length is 85mm. If this was an 85mm medium format lens, we'd still put in 85mm. If it was a manual 85mm m4/3 lens from Samyang or Voightlander we'd put in 85mm. If it was an 85mm C-mount lens, we'd put in 85mm.
