Short answer: YES!

That is the ballast resistor. When cold it's resistance is very low allowing essentially full battery voltage to reach the coil, thus insuring a hot spark for starting.

Within a few seconds of running the resistance increases and reduces the coil voltage preventing coil burn out.
