No.  It means forcing the original signal disposition to SIG_DFL for the
tty-generated job control signals when the shell is interactive:

/* Called once in a parent process. */
get_original_tty_job_signals ()
  static int fetched = 0;

  if (fetched == 0)
      if (interactive_shell)
          set_original_signal (SIGTSTP, SIG_DFL);
          set_original_signal (SIGTTIN, SIG_DFL);
          set_original_signal (SIGTTOU, SIG_DFL);
          get_original_signal (SIGTSTP);
          get_original_signal (SIGTTIN);
          get_original_signal (SIGTTOU);
      fetched = 1;

You can use your change, if it works for you, but it just reverts the
bug the bash-4.4 change fixes.
