This is correct.
With "man wine", you can read, that WINEDLLPATH is the location, where
the wine internal shared libraries (*.dll.so) are stored.
Windows DLLS are searched in the same locations as on native Windows:
In the actual Directory, in the System-Directory and in the PATH.

Put the dll in the Application Directory
cd in the Application Directory
wine <yourapp.exe>
