Do they bang around a lot under sail?

Wait I looked closer and it looks like they remain attached to the boom but if that is the case is some portion of them stretchy or is there a block with extra line somehow?

OK I looked again.
You have a standard lazyjack setup with permanent attachment to the boom the very top line instead of being terminated 1/3rd from the top of the mast has a block at that point so the tail end can come down the mast and terminate in a cleat reachable from deck.
Did I get that right?
