Yes. Exactamundo. Sonos is effectively a connected device that Alexa can partly control. I have no experience of the Sonos One, so can't comment on that, but my understanding is that Alexa talks out of that speaker. However Alexa functionality is limited on that device - no drop in ability for example.
That is the way it works. You can control music on the Sonos speakers, but all other audio is still going to come out of the Dot.
