That's what it means, yes. Lugging an engine is very bad. Accelerates wear.

Many early 4 bangers used to have this problem, as the general public was used to V-8s, and didn't know you had to keep the revs up.

I'm not sure this "lugging" talk applies to all 4 cylinders.
I'll make a compelling argument about how my 2.5L avcs and turbo equipped H4 motor has no problem being "lugged" when I'm a little less drunk
