Not true, Seann, though it was back in the old days with my '65 Ford.

From the Dexter website electric brake manual:

Self Adjusting Feature
(Not available on all sizes)
Dexter electric brakes may be equipped with a forward self-adjust
feature. This will allow the brakes to adjust on both forward and
reverse stops. Brake adjustment occurs when lining wear results in
enough gap between the shoes and the brake drum surface. This
added clearance will allow the adjuster mechanism to rotate the
screw assembly at the bottom of the brake. That action expands
the distance between the shoes and thus closes the gap to the
drum surface.
