In reading about the vorlauf process, it seems that a recirculating mash is pretty-much just constant vorlauf for the entire mash time -- am I right about that?

If so, then is it also true that there's no need to vorlauf at the end of a recirculation mash, just lauter & sparge, yes?

Or am I missing some critical point about vorlauf?

Yes. If you are recirculating through the mash and that mash is filtering that it is as good as vorlauf. If you fly sparge your good to go. if you batch sparge you will need to vorlauf again if you want clear wort.
