No, that is incorrect. If Shaping only worked on outgoing we would not
need the Direction (in/out/any) option in the Shaping rules.
To clarify: Firewall rules only work on the packet as it enters the
firewall. Traffic Shaper rules work wherever they match.
I tend to use only the WAN interface in my rules but that is only to
simplify things, the shaper is difficult as it is.
