Boom Vang Question

Not sure if I'm posting in the right forum or subforum, but I recently looked at a 30 ft. boat that did not have a boom vang. It did, however, have the traveler mounted on the cabin top for mid-boom sheeting. I believe the mainsheet had 3 attachment points on the boom. Will the mainsheet perform the same function as the vang (control twist), because of the mid-boom sheeting? I was a little surprised by the absence of the vang, but is this normal? Thanks for the information.
