This is correct. Unless the device intercepts the TLP before it hits the root-port then this would be considered a "route to self" violation and an error event would occur. The same holds for the downstream port on a PCI switch (unless route-to-self violations are disabled which violates the spec but which I have seen done in certain applications).
